My therapist goes above and beyond. She listens to me and also checks in on me if we have not talked. She is very kind and tries to help me think logically and gives me techniques to help with solving problems and guide me with a better way of doing things and thinking about a situation

I am so impressed with Catina! Her mind is super sharp! I was blown away with how quickly she was able to assess and help all the different situations going on in my life. She is a pleasure to talk with, you can feel how intelligent she is and she is extremely supportive and helpful. I really lucked out getting her and I know she is going to help me because she already has from our very first meeting.

Catina is truly amazing. She has helped me in so many ways, and I have only been seeing her for three weeks. I have always been a little skeptical of going back to therapy after a failed first attempt, but Catina has made me feel so comfortable.
