I’ve only worked with Alia once but it was a great start. She was insightful and helpful immediately.

Written on Jun 21, 2023 after therapy with Alia for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

She was my first match & I'm thankful. She helps me talk through the things that make my voice shake. She doesn't slap labels on what I'm going through. She pushes the conversation towards where it should go. She's helping me regrasp my strength & remember who I am. She is a graceful woman & I am glad to have met her.
