I have been working with Ms. Brown for a few months now and we have built a great therapist-client relationship. I know that I can message her with concerns at anytime and she will respond in a timely manner. Meeting once a week has been a great help with therapy allowing myself to practice new habits and use worksheets that we discuss together to help me be a better me. Ms. Brown has been very supportive through this process and I have really enjoyed working with her as a therapist.

I feel I can relate to Genotra and she presents everything in a way that is practical and specific to my situation. Her calm and warm personality makes it easy to open up. I look forward to our sessions all week long :)
