Alma is an incredible listener. She is so invested in getting to know me on a personal level that I feel I really can tell her everything! I also really enjoy the personal touches that she sends me every week, little messages that remind me that she is there for me and that I really can connect with her whenever I need to.

I really appreciate Alma as a person and as my therapist. She does a good job. She is very supportive, she listens and has good suggestions. I am happy to have her as my therapist and also wish, I had reached out for help earlier. With her support I am able to work on myself, not being to hard on myself and be confident about the future and that I will overcome my bad behavior from my past. Things have become better already but my journey is not over yet. Looking forward to get more work done with Alma.

I’ve only spent a short amount of time with Alma, but so far I’m grateful for her. She listens and validates my feelings during a time no one has but also offers sound advice that has helped me navigate some tough situations. So thank you Alma!

So far I’ve only had two sessions with Alma but she has been extremely helpful and understanding. I enjoy her feedback it makes me feel as though she is listening, which some counselors did not make me feel that way. I feel as time continues that she will be able to help me.
