I have been with Anastasia as my therapist for about a year now and I can't see myself with anyone else. We fit like a glove. She's compassionate, straight-forward, patient and insightful. She has given me great tools to help build my self confidence and self love, my relationships ( work, romantic, family, etc) and allows me to be ME. She has become my confidant all while staying 100%professional. I would absolutely recommend.

She knows me better than I know myself at this point. Shes very quick to adjust if I reveal something I've been hiding, and knows to keep me in check if she notices me sugar-coating. Her sweet bubbly personality makes it easier to feel less tense
