Really great, helpful and I don’t feel pressured to do/talk about things I don’t want to or feel like I will be judged for what I say

Charmaine is amazing! She’s always on time, listens, offers excellent insights, and genuinely cares. She checks in throughout the week and provides helpful handouts. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist.!
