Dr Novitskie is a wonderful therapist that I would 100% recommend! I feel very comfortable with and taken seriously by her so that opening up about trauma and anxieties feels totally natural. She helped me reflect on my past and understand my current thoughts so that now I feel so much clearer in my head. I am always looking forward to our next session. Thank you so, so much!
