 I retired from a State medical facility employing a staff of psychologists, so am able render a competent review.  Unfortunately, lack of space forces me to be blunt.
Knowledge: Immediate bias & apalling disrespect. She was accusatory & dictatorial - later assumed tb a result of being on staff at the same facility as the "other party" in the case. Is this the initial posture of a reputable therapist? Furthermore (in her own words) we were "passed off"  to her partner (failing to disclose that he is her husband) because "he was more experienced."
Quality of work: No returns calls. Retains almost nothing (likely the result of not taking notes") & repeatedly asks the same questions. Investigation underway for billing "incoherent by any standard".
Office: No staff.  She & office are unkempt and professionally disorganized.  Though I'm a "dog person" the inert mass of matted hair at her feet, righteously pointed out tb "rescued" by her, strikes me as little  more than egotistical "prop".  I wondered if the poor thing was dead.
Waiting time: not long - not many patients lining up at that door!

I have had an excellent experience with this therapist. She is intelligent, instructive, and caring. I am especially impressed with the way she retains information, remembering details of what I tell her even though she never writes anything down as I'm speaking. She makes time for crisis appointments and returns calls in a timely manner. I appreciate that she has a good sense of humor, when appropriate.  While she doesn't force her own ideas on patients, she is extremely well-versed in many different areas pertaining to the therapy process and life, in general. I've never had a problem with billing.

She doesn't know what she is doing in regards to running an office. You will get billed years later with insurance mumbo jumbo and start hitting you with late fees. She screwed up insurance billing, for approximately 10 visits, she billed the insurance company at least 50 times. We have the EOBS to prove it. Stay away from this person at all costs. Her bills look like she produced them with Microsoft Word and not some kind of business application. We know that name of her biller, and we contacted our insurance support staff and caught her in lies. She will not call you to discuss billing. We paid our copayments and it appears she is making up excuses to extort money out of us. She only sends out late fee's and that's all. STAY AWAY
