Pleased with the results! Dr. Blake says it like it is! I appreciated that. Although sometimes I didn't see where things were going at first, it later made sense, Dr. Blake found hidden streams that were overflowing into the lake. Once I realized this, It helped me work things out .

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Blake and my experience with her. When I first started seeing her, I was struggling to cope with my anxiety. After visiting Dr. Blake over the past several months, she has helped me clearly identify several factors that were causing me trouble. Dr Blake is a fantastic and attentive listener, she provides you with a very comfortable environment where you do not feel judged. She has helped me develop coping methods, that I know I will most definetly benefit from using. I would recommend Dr Blake to anyone I know!

Dr. Blake is an excellent psychologist. She has helped me tremendously with OCD/anxiety. Thanks to her help, OCD has gone from something that controlled my mental health to a minor nuisance. She is an excellent listener and has a gift for identifying the root cause of problems. She is also very warm, kind, open minded and nonjudgemental. Furthermore, she is very knowledgeable and has given me the impression that she always strives to be up to date on her profession. I thank Dr. Blake and highly recommend her.

I have had several sessions with Dr. Blake. She is very easy to talk to and has helped me put things into perspective. She communicates her ideas very effectively and makes sure that you understand what it is she is trying to tell you. The tools and concepts that she provides have been very helpful indeed. The time I have spent in sessions with her has been very productive. Highly recommended!

Horrible. I don't understand how she is highly rated. She is not sensitive to issues at all. I had to switch and seek another counsellor to deal with how horrible our sessions were.

Dr. Blake was able to provide the guidance and support during a very difficult and challenging period in my life. She has a unique sense of making one feel comfortable/safe, while at the same time opening your heart and mind to accepting and constructively moving forward. Dr. Blake encourages self-realization and learning to be kind to one-self. She helps one see that things are never as bad as we think they are, and that avoidance is never the answer. As for time and appointments, she is very professional and flexible when it comes to making time for her patients; there were never any issues when booking or re-scheduling appointments. Thank you Dr. Blake! You are a very warm, kind, empathetic soul, and most importantly a wonderful healer; I feel very blessed to have crossed paths with you.
