Dr. Fallon’s Practice continues to grow as we bring together a passionate and dedicated team of practitioners, some of whom have worked with Dr. Fallon in the past and some of whom she clinically supervised and mentored through their pre-licensing hours and beyond. Our therapists are all encouraged to practice within the specialty areas they feel the most passionate about and are the most skilled in. All services are currently provided through our easy to use and reliable HIPAA compliant telehealth platform requiring zero commute time to and from our offices while offering clients the opportunity to engage in therapy from the comfort of home or anywhere that is private and convenient.
