Alyece is the best therapist I’ve had from all other therapist I’ve had over the course of my 6 years of hopping from therapist to therapist. She’s really empathetic and really helps me the best way possible and listens with an open mind. I’m so glad to have found her!

Alyece is amazing! This was my first experience with therapy, and she was so kind, patient, helpful and honest! She made me feel comfortable. She helped me to find different ways to work through my negative thoughts about myself as well as my stress and anxiety. If you get Alyece as your therapist, you wont regret it. I promise!

Alyece is very patient, kind, and understanding of my issues. She lays them out in a way where I can see into my issues from an outside perspective, which is nice.

I've only been working with Alyece for a short period of time, but I have been very happy with her right from the start.
Shortly after being matched with her, she was already messaging me to get to know me better prior to our first session. She listens, and she does an excellent job of reflecting back to me with suggestions to help me cope and eventually overcome my stressors and anxiety.
I appreciate that the always messages multiple times between sessions to keep me on track and if I have concerns or questions, she responds in timely manner.
I would highly recommend Alyece.

Alyece is my first therapy/therapist experience and I can’t stop raving about her and my experience to my friends. I feel like she really understands me and gives me a safe space. I find her advice / suggestions to be externally helpful. After every session I feel at ease and like I can take on the world again.

I sought therapy because I was feeling burnt out or depressed without being able to point to what caused it. In just one session, Alyece helped uncover an issue that may be contributing to feeling low that I hadn't considered. I felt heard and understood. She also gave me hope that my feelings will improve.
