Listened to me in the first therapy session. We had technical issues but once they were resolved we had a good session.

She is extremely knowledgeable and helps me to understand how my brain works as we’re going through things. I felt comfortable with her immediately and have already seen progress in only a few sessions. I can’t wait to see how we progress!

Angela has been incredibly helpful. She understands what I'm trying to say and provides me with useful exercises to do in between sessions.

She listens and explains what she wants to go over with me, what she's cautious about getting into and why. I really appreciate her communication
