LPC #003164 (Expires: 2022-09-30)
I feel like she really cares and listens to me. She’s not all about talk therapy . She actually listens to you and then send you homework for you to do so that you can actually work through your issues not just talk about them. I really like her style and hope to work with her for as long as I need to :)
Anila is very kind and supportive, she has given me tangible tips to start getting over my fears. After only a few sessions has made me feel like I can slowly get better, which feels really good.
Anila has been very helpful as my therapist. She has helped me with my marriage issues and feelings of negativity. She listens patiently and I feel very comfortable with her.
She is awesome very patient and understanding and has made my first experience phenomenal/extremely effective in aiding my growth.
