    I wish there is a way to rate these professionals and leave a comment on the quality of their service. I received service from Sue Soler for a child custody agreement. I think she took a long time to work on our case and she gave a superficial and unthoughtful report. I wished she had the skills to analyze a complex situation and to give me and my ex-partner an articulated evaluation of the situation. Unfortunately neither her experience nor her education served the purpose. I feel I picked the wrong one in this list. Reviews and ratings would have been helpful to make the right choice. Those exists for medical doctors, lawyers etc. why not for family therapists? thank you
