Akemi is understanding and supportive. She offers helpful solutions.
A great listener. I didnt know I really needed to let stuff out. She helped me find a way to put things in perspective.
Im happy to be paired with her.
Akemi is a wonderful counselor who takes time and listens to what I am going through. She offers solutions and insights that help me to focus on changing myself before I expect change from others. She responds quickly and checks in on me if I am not reaching out. Happy I am connected with her.
Loved working with Ms. McGoogan. She is so helpful and I've grown so much from our work together.
Akemi is so kind and a great listener. Her counseling had helped me tremendously. I highly recommend anyone that is dealing with anxiety/depression.
I’m super grateful for Akemi. I have learned so much from her in a short amount of time and I am looking forward to growing under her guidance!
Love her! It’s only been about a week but I’m confident that she’s a great help to me and my mental health
I enjoy talking with Akemi! She understands what’s important to me and helps me stay focused & on task. She is very kind and motivating as well. I can be myself with her and that has helped give me more confidence too!
My counselor helped me keep my focus on what was important to me. She listened, which sometimes is all I really need.
Akemi is wonderful! I've been able to work though my anxiety and self sabotaging w issues with her. I appreciate all her insight and support.
I love how soon I hear from Akemi, and how understood i feel by her. When she messages me it never came across as rude or mean, it was always kind and sweet! I feel heard by her, and I don’t feel heard by my family so it’s a nice feeling!
She listens and she is all about positivity, she's there for when she needs you. And won't stress about any negative or personal pain.
Akemi is very patient and compassionate and is great at suggestion ideas on how to cope with stress and anxiety. Very easy to talk to in person, highly recommend to those who need counseling for anxiety and depression.
Akemi is quick to respond, a great listener and very thorough when helping me work through my presenting issues. This has been a great match!
I appreciate all of the advice that Akemi has given me, she has been a true gift from God in helping me navigate in my life. I am always excited to speak with her each week for more wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Thank you!
Akemi has been very supportive and effective in helping to direct my focus.
Akemi was very helpful while I was dealing with anxiety and fear about moving to a new city and starting a new job. She helped me find ways and strategies to manage my anxieties and work through things!
She has been very helpful!
She is an amazing and compassionate counselor!
While we have only been working together for a short while, I find Akemi's calm and considerate approach to her work to be very reassuring. She has been nothing but reliable and compassionate and it has helped affirm my decision to seek counseling in this format.
Akemi is very attentive and helps out as much as possible. I like the worksheets and reviews she gave me to better understand myself .
