Dr. Garcia has been a supportive, helpful, and empathetic therapist to me. She has really helped me confront my trauma, and continues to support me.
Written on Aug 04, 2023 after therapy with Avis for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes
Dr Garcia listened to the issues I was experiencing and had insightful feedback about some things she noticed that could be contributing to it. She suggested some mental exercises to shift the way I was thinking - they absolutely worked and I'm already seeing improvements in my mental state. I would definitely recommend working with Dr. Garcia!
