Dara has been a ray of positivity and I feel so grateful and lucky to have her as my therapist. She has been an invaluable support for me in helping me with understanding my feelings, thoughts and decisions. Always from a non judgemental and objective point of view, but with a very caring empathetic approach. Thank you Dara! :)
