Alena is a good match for me. She helps me walk my journey not telling me where to go, but allowing me to discover my path and guides me on the path.

This by far has been my best experience with a therapist. Alena has been truly a godsend. I believe she genuinely cares about my well being and my progression. Alena not only is active during our live sessions , but she is quick to respond to my messages. Every Monday she sends out a message with a quote. It's usually a very feel good message, motivational message to start your week off right and I really enjoy them.

Great therapist greatly limited by their time offerings due to being located in a different country than me.
