I loveeee talking to Carla! She gets me and it truly feels like everytime we talk she is listening, engaged and even asks me questions about past conversations. I have never had a therapist for this long before and I truly love my experience. It feels like I’m talking to family and I feel so much better after my calls with her. 10/10 would recommend <3
