Flor has been a wonderful support in the few months I have worked with her. I have grown more with her than in the ten years of traditional therapy I had before. She always recommends relevant articles, worksheets and exercises that are so on point with what I need!

Flor is a great listener and is very perceptive. She helps me see things in a different way. I appreciate her helping me through my depression/anxiety. I couldn't do this alone.

My experience has been nothing but positive with Flor. She gets where I am coming from and helps me see things in a new light, and consider things I haven’t before. She is helpful and easy to talk to. No judgment has ever been conveyed from her. She is knowledgeable and friendly.

Counselor Flor is very kind. I have not worked too long with her but so far, I feel we are a good fit and she understands where I am coming from. That is very hard to find so I truly appreciate her help.
