What Our Patients Are Saying
“I have always been treated well at Riverside. My concerns are always addressed and I feel that Dr. Hall really listens to me. The staff at the front desk are considerate and helpful even on the phone. I'd also recommend Dr. Hall's book, Breaking Through Depression. It's really a unique way of thinking about depression. ”Amy WPatient
“Riverside Counseling has been a tremendous blessing to me (and my family)! I cannot describe how much help I have received there. I have seen a therapist there, Angela, and have been very happy with the things I have learned and put into practice in my life. It was hard to make that first appointment, but it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I wasted many years struggling for nothing. Wish I had pursued this much earlier in my life!”LenPatient
