“My daughter is doing much better since she began with Dr. Pousada-Fitzpatrick. She is now able to handle difficult situations better. She now has coping mechanisms. In the last few months she has handled an extremely difficult break up and the death of a relative who died suddenly. Both situations she handled a lot better than most. Before I would have been very afraid that she would self harm but she didn’t. She has become more mature and discusses her feelings a lot more with me. I am so grateful for Dr. Pousada-Fitzpatrick”.

"I attended Dr. Andrea for over a year arising from a very challenging family environment. When I started therapy I was at sea and vulnerable. Overtime, under her skill, expertise and compassion I was able to gain new perspective, develop strategies and deal successfully the challenges. I feel I'm now very well equipped for the future”.
