Great listener, I appreciate her perspective.

Never believed I needed therapy until my GF suggested it to save our relationship. Trauma from childhood reared its ugly head into my life when I thought it was all behind me. It didn’t happen until I entered a long term relationship. Celeste has been great at listening and helping me cope with finding myself again. It will be a long road but so far I trust her in helping me.

Very kind and a good listener. Provides lots of helpful tools and ways to redirect anxious thinking. Very great match for anyone sensitive, anxious, self conscious, or struggling with repetitive negative thoughts.

Calm, intelligent, insightful and kind. This is my view of therapy with Celeste this far. This may be my first real match with a therapist.
