Andrea is fantastic! Her energy is great and she is helping me to make this an enjoyable experience that I actually think I can grow in. She's challenging me to grow partly by analyzing what is already here and also by helping me shift my view and providing me a safe space to really track things through, even when I'd rather not poke at them, and turn them into places to grow from. She really makes therapy into something I want to do because I'm learning and strengthening myself through instead of something I have to do because I'm "broken," "weak," or whatever else I grew up thinking going to therapy would prove me to be.

Andrea is a great therapist, she really digs deep into what the problems can be and helps you to see things from a different perspective. So far, she has been prompt in her responses and genuinely cares about her job.
