Helen is exactly who and what I need as a therapist, she listens to me, understands me, and provides me with resources to assist my needs. She has been able to help me in ways I never thought could be possible. I am becoming the person I hoped to become and I cannot thank her enough!
Helen is a nice therapist who listen with attention and empathy and she offers great resources to help you process your feelings and thoughts. Thank you so much for your help.
I’ve only had a couple of sessions with Helen but I can already see improvement and how she has helped me to become more mindful. I would strongly recommend her.
She has a very practical sense on how to work through the situations!
Helen is amazing, she helped me open doors that I was to afraid to open. She makes every session insightful because of her wisdom.
