IS DR. MAY THE RIGHT THERAPIST FOR YOU?
On average, clients are recommended to visit with Dr. May for a brief amount of time. But by choice clients stay with Dr. May to expand on their development and success. Dr. May has the profound ability to work with people at different stages of their lives and she credits this ability to her own personal development journey.
Furthermore, to become certified in IMAGO counseling, she was required to sit in the experience of the client and explore her own familial relationships and marriage.
