LPC #62865 (Expires: 2021-10-31)


Written by L.A. on Apr 07, 2021 after counseling with Graciela for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Graciela is patient, and willing to work with my individual needs. I have less than common needs, and the ways in which I am accommodated for them with the counseling provided has allowed me a space that is very important for someone like me. I am thankful to have a supportive human who listens and supports the healthy efforts I make. I feel supported even when I fail because I am reminded of who I am, and what I want to be in life. I value my counseling sessions as much as my medication management, and the positive growth I am capable of with my needs accommodated. I am still learning my needs myself. I’ve used this app for one year to the day. Both counselors I have worked with have served me very well. My first counselor walked with me through the darkest part of my life to attaining my official diagnosis with a neuropsychologist, and Graciela is supporting me through finding the strength of my disability and mental health resilience. I highly recommend Graciela to anyone in my position in life.
