I believe Dashima truly respects and listens to her patients. She has been so so so supportive of me through my struggles and I am forever thankful for her help. She has been a support system when I’ve been feeling my loneliest and that is priceless. I would strongly recommend Dashima to anyone who needs someone to just be there! Sometimes we just need someone to listen and engage and she is phenomenal at that. She is friendly and kind. It’s easy to open up to her.
