Ellissa has been absolutely amazing. She is a great listener, but is also willing to provide professional guidance and examples of what I am going through and how I am feeling. She was so quick to learn my situation and what I wanted to get out of therapy. And she is incredibly flexible!! Life has been crazy lately and I live that we are able to reschedule appointments when things come up.
Written on May 08, 2023 after therapy with Elissa for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, and adhd
