Written by M.E. on Apr 23, 2022 after therapy with Paula for 2 months

"Dr. Ehrmantraut has been extremely supportive and has made herself quite available to help us in what has been a very difficult time. My socially anxious teenager may have never gone to a therapist in person, and meeting with her virtually was such an advantage! She has been patient and responsive, and has spent as much time chatting/messaging with me as she has supporting my son. It has been so nice to feel that I have another adult on my team as I try to help him."

Dr. Ehrmantraut is available, but not overbearing. She will hear you out and knows when to offer a solution, and when to simply listen. I trust her and appreciate her for the empathy and expertise she shows in her approach.

Dr Ehrmantraut was a wonderful resource to me during a very stressful event in my life. She was timely in her responses and really seemed to care about me as a human. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help.
