Very good listener and always understands my problems

Written by F.R. on Oct 18, 2021 after therapy with Andra for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

I only met with Andra a handful of times, but she was exceptional. It was her breadth of experience with an eclectic style that enabled her to resource and guide me toward more specific tools and methods. I felt stuck and she put me right back on the path and I will forever be grateful.

I am so appreciative and thankful for my counselor Andra. She is so kind, quick to respond, such a great listener and giver of wise advice and counsel, and I feel very safe to be open and vulnerable with her. She is one of the best counselors I have ever worked with and I am so grateful to have her support and expertise in my life.

So helpful at advising on how to make my life better with also listening diligently to issues happening with myself and I feel heard and respected!

Written by H.A. on Jun 14, 2021 after therapy with Andra for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and adhd

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!

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.
