Andra feels more like a wise friend I can depend on than a therapist… which is great! She makes me feel safe and comfortable to share things that have been hard for me to face or explain and move past. I’m really glad I get to work with her and look forward to how our sessions will continue to improve my life. Thanks Andra!
Responsive and really listens.
Andra is very supportive, you can tell that she takes her job seriously and is hardworking and confident in what she does. It didn’t take me long to feel comfortable about opening up to her regarding the issues I’m having in my life.
Andra is fantastic, so very blessed for her.
Andra is very empathetic counselor. She listens to client carefully and asks thoughtful questions. She introduces ways of working through dilemmas and offers options for coping.
