Carmen has offered so many great tools and techniques to try for my mental health to help me to be stronger and more confident in my own abilities. I never feel judged I only feel heard when we have a session. I’m so grateful for this service and for Carmen

Carmen has been a great and tentative listener. She remembers the small details. Always has great encouragement and wise words to help when I need it the most.

She is open to listen and responds clearly. My way of speaking often wanders around points and she goes on the journey with me. Carmen is a wonderful therapist.
