After dealing with Remedy and Path and various start-uppy places during the pandemic where I had no access to actual certified providers and was dealing with therapists and social workers who were unable to provide me with real diagnoses or prescribe the most effective treatments, my intake at Circle was such a delight, I felt so seen and heard and listened to and like I found a place for all of my needs. I plan to look into much more than just behavioral health through Circle going forward!
