I don't feel the disconnect with Mrs. Elicia that I have in the past with other therapists. She is comforting, easy to talk to, and so supportive. She does her best to meet the needs of me, and I'm sure her other clients too. Hands down the best therapist I've ever had the pleasure of meeting! 5 stars Mrs. Elicia! I hope you get to see this so you know that you're doing an amazing job!
