Grace is wonderful to work with. She is empathetic and supportive. It is easy to build trust with her as she is a great listener. I've made progress since seeing her!

I have only had 2 calls but I really like Grace. She's professional, knowledgeable & has great availability. I look forward to speaking with her & don't feel the need to hold back.

I was really nervous to start therapy as I had bad experiences as a child. Grace was very patient with me and I made a lot of progress in the day to day management of my mental health. I have always struggled to feel patient with myself and to give myself grace (accidental pun). Even though we didn't talk about this specifically, Grace somehow asked the right questions and gave me the right guidance to be in a much better place in relation to myself. Highly recommend!!

She is delicate with the situations I said to her; she understood how to help me with my personal conflicts and I believe she was the best for my concerns with my personal conflicts. I highly recommend her people who are seeking help for the issues I struggled with.

It’s been years since I’ve done therapy. After having a very unpleasant experience I didn’t think I’d open up to a therapist again. Grace is GREAT at what she does. I feel heard, seen and understood during our sessions.
