Anita was wonderful. I had tried therapy before and was hesitant to try it again because my experience with my therapist was not very pleasant. But that all changed with Anita, she listened so well, she did not make me feel invalid and she said things in ways that got through to me. Would 10/10 recommend her to anyone I know. Thank you Anita

I've only had one session with Anita so far but she's wonderful! She allowed me to talk through my issues and just dump information on her. She has been a great support over the past few weeks and she is a genuinely kind soul.
