Aneka and I have met once and I can already tell that she is very knowledgeable and truly cares about my wellbeing. I was looking for a therapist that I can be a team with, and I definitely found that in her!
I have only worked a few sessions with Aneka Spencer, but she has a variety of ways to cope with my situation and ask the exact questions of me I need to answer, even if they are tough. She has a kind per who also sees driven to help others in a professional way. I would like to give another review in a few weeks. Thank you.
Aneka is very thoughtful, warm, and perceptive, an excellent listener, and has been a tremendous resource for me. I'm lucky to have been able to get her perspective during a difficult time in my life, and highly recommend her.
Aneka was lovely to speak to as she listened to me unconditionally and was able to provide me with insight and tools. She would check up on me weekly and read my journal entries to keep updated with my life. Aneka was empathic and honest. My short time working with her made me feel better.
Definitely a great match for me. She’s extremely intuitive and compassionate.
She is very informative, she listens intuitively and gives great resources. She follows up with prior session discussions and gives closure to previous topics before moving on.
I've just started my treatment with Aneka, but so far so good. She's very helpful and is very sincere. She truly wants you to get better and is flexible with her availability which is helpful if you have work and want to schedule around that.
I have only had a few sessions, and therefore can't give a long-term review, but has been very helpful so far!
She is a attentive counselor who cares about the well being of her clients. I find it easy to talk to and she provides a safe place for you to talk and unwind. I am appreciative to have her as a counselor. She provides resources that are user friendly and impactful on self care and awareness.
