Cicely is wonderful. I have seen a few therapists over the years and when I found her I knew after just a couple of sessions that she was the right one for me.
I love how I can talk to her like a close friend, there’s no stuffy formalities and she listens then gives me helpful strategies to work though what I can.
She gives great tools for PTSD symptoms, grief coping, abuse trauma, and cognitive dissonance.
I have experienced so much healing in my first year of therapy with her. I can’t recommend her enough!

Cicely is incredibly easy to talk to. Her warm, calm, and reassuring demeanor creates a sense of safety when speaking with her. She skillfully lets me guide my own healing while supporting me completely with words of encouragement and validation, and with new tools I can consider applying. She listens well, and pivots gracefully if I express that an idea or tool isn’t resonating. I thought therapy would be an uncomfortable experience, but she’s made it so much easier than I expected and I am very grateful to her expertise.
