I don’t know how to write this without getting emotional but Alisa is truly a gift. I’m so lucky to have her as my therapist. Alisa makes me feel comfortable and safe without any judgement. My experience with her is slowly changing my negative thoughts and I can’t say enough how good it feels to have a person who shows real care for her patience. Thank you to her and thank you for this amazing app that I truly recommend to anyone who needs to grow mentality and emotionally.

Alisa Sharoikina is a very warm and engaging therapist who has made me very comfortable in sharing my most intimate thoughts and life experiences. She is very easy to open up to and has offered me constructive ways of dealing with issues I face. I was not looking for merely a person to listen to me and witness me, but someone who could offer some expert and informed guidance and ways of coping with past traumas and current situations. I feel that I have found a perfect blending of both in Alisa. I would highly recommend her.
