Hope is so positive and such a good listener. Within my first session, she diagnosed me and sent me resources that have been extremely helpful. I have noticed an improvement in the way I communicate and how I deal with my anxieties. Thank you, Hope!

Talking to Hope for the past year has been so helpful to me while working through hard situations from the past while also helping me make plans and stick to them in the future. She is very kind and understanding. I would recommend her to anyone.

Hope is a warm and wonderful therapist. I am in my twenties and was initially worried that our generational gap would prevent me from seeing progress, but this has not been the case at all. She always answers with a smile, has a very calming presence, and keeps things positive without indulging in "toxic positivity." I especially love that Hope shares her full opinions with me-- if she thinks I did something wrong, she tells me.

Having Hope as my therapist is so helpful. She’s kind, understanding and helps me think about things overtime and is patient. I didn’t know how much I needed a therapist again until I started!
