"I believe that the single most important component of the treatment process is the therapeutic relationship. It develops over time as a product of trust in the therapist and feeling like you have been heard."
“Dr Bailey was a huge help to me after I found out about my husbands affair. My life felt out of control and I didn't trust my own judgement anymore because I was so blind sided by my husbands affair. With Dr Baileys help, I have my confidence back and feel strong again. She is compassionate and caring and I would highly recommend her.”
“This woman is awesome. She is very astute at picking up what the real problem in a relationship is, and while my spouse and I danced around it and never addressed it in therapy, I was always impressed the doctor actually knew what my problem with the relationship was. She helped us fix some of the other issues so we have continued on, cobbled together, thanks to this woman. I hope she is doing well. She really is a saint.”
