Cassandra is very warm, engaging, and makes therapy fun! It feels like I'm sitting down and having a chat with a friend who also happens to be a therapist. She makes me feel very comfortable and her intelligence and knowledge is evident. I would highly recommend Cassandra to anyone!

Cassandra was a happy surprise in the midst of all of this craziness going on. She has been supportive, understanding, and professional. She’s helped me through a lot in such a short span of time. I am so grateful and would recommend her to any of my friends and family!

I have so many good things to say about Cassandra as my therapist--she is insightful, patient, and supportive.
Processing my childhood trauma in my mid-thirties has not been an easy process but Cassandra has given me the space to begin my healing. I've worked with Cassandra for almost two months and I've utilized both the message board and the weekly video sessions to connect with her. What I appreciate the most of Cassandra is how she has let me be me. Her patience allowed me the time and space I needed to work through my memories at a pace that feels good to me.
