I enjoyed my sessions with Dr. Blake but I kind of felt that her practice was too much about money. I felt pressured when I looked into a group but didn't feel it was right for me.

Dr. Blake is the kind of psychologist who is really passionate about her work and genuinely wants to help people. I first started to see her for my depression and through our sessions, she made me realize that I was also suffering from social anxiety. From then on, we started focusing on my problems with social anxiety and I must say that I've improved tremendously from the first time we've met. She is also very accommodating with our sessions despite the restrictions caused by my financial situation and is always willing to change her approach if ever there is something I didn't like. I've seen a few professionals for my issues and I must say, Dr. Blake is the best one. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a good psychologist.

DR Blake was by far the worst doctor my daughter has seen. But we wanted to give it a chance so my daughter continued for several visits . It only got worse. If anything her anxiety became worse over those weeks. They just continued to go in circles discussing the same things over and over and my daughter could never be comfortable with her. On the the two occasions I met her I found her to be a poor communicator and seemed more interested in the clock and running that credit card through to get to the next billing . We could never recommend Dr Blake.

The moment that I met Dr. Blake, I knew that she would be different from all (and I do mean ALL) of the psychologists that I've seen in the past. I finally understood what the word «hope» meant. Having lived within the dark well of severe depression and complex PTSD for most of my life, I was absolutely convinced that being OK again was not an option for me. The best that I could ever aspire to was convincing myself every day not to end it all. With her kindness, warmth and patience, she was able to help me see that I can move beyond the pain and the negative thoughts. This woman knows her stuff - she will listen to you in such a careful and perceptive way that will allow you to pinpoint the exact moment when you can create positive changes. She will not be shy about convincing you that you are worth love, adventure, respect, kindness and all of the good things life has to offer. If you don't know, or believe in, your worth - you will. Thanks to our sessions, I KNOW that I can be successful and that whatever hardship life may bring, I will have the grace and courage to overcome it. I am so much closer to being the person that I wish to be with her help. Granted, I still have a lot of work to do, but, I am inspired to do it. If you suffer from mental anguish, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation or low self-esteem, I implore you to see Dr. Blake.

Saw Dr. Blake for some issues I was having at the work place. Unfortunately she was not able to help me with those issues. I found her approach a little cold and at times I felt as if I was bothering her with my story. She was at times late to begin the session, payment needed to be done up front which at times was somewhat of a long process and she always seemed to be watching the clock which simply got to me after a while. She just seemed to be more interested in growing as a business woman and her office than actually helping people when they're in need. Save your money, go else where!

Dr. Blake has helped me through one of my hardest times in my life. When I came to see Dr. Blake, I felt lost and didn't know where to go from there. She is such a peaceful, sweet and helpful person! She has the ability to ask me questions I would never think about, which is amazing to me. She helped me strive for the best of myself and I still am! I love the energy Dr. Blake gives out, makes me feel calm, comfortable and easy to talk to. I can not thank you Dr. Blake enough for helping me with everything I was going through. She is such a wonderful and amazing person!

Dr. Blake helped me when I hit rock bottom. She helped me identify what felt wrong in my life, and helped me to put them in perspective. Her insights, and her ability to ask the tough questions, made it possible for me to see that I wasn't completely lost. Dr. Blake helped me see that I had the tools to continue living and striving for a better life for myself. She is easy to talk to, to discuss with and is very patient and kind. Talking to Dr. Blake felt comfortable and easy, which was very welcomed in a time of my life when I didn't think anyone would listen or care. Dr. Blake is a wonderful and caring psychologist, and I am very glad to have met her, worked with her, and continue to do so.

It's not always easy to find the courage to seek help, but when you do find it within yourself to do so, the experience is made greater with someone like Dr. Blake. Her professionalism, extensive knowledge, and overall approach is simply incredible. Having never sought out professional help before, I was immediately struck by Dr. Blake's calm and inviting approach; she made me want to talk! What a difference her guidance has made in my life. If you are considering therapy, I would highly recommend Dr. Blake.
