She is excellent! Professional, trustworthy and licensed! Extremely genuine and kind. I would recommend her to anybody who is struggling and wants to grow or move beyond their issues. She is willing to hear you out completely, provide perspective and guidance. She has exceeded my expectations and I'm sure she'll exceed yours! Just to give you perspective: We are currently working on my chronic anxiety and depression which includes problematic thinking and some serious trust issues. What did she do for me? She actually listened and was a positive source in addition to my treatment. Definitely someone who can be relied for appointments and typically responds within an hour most of the time throughout the week via text. If you are teetering or are simply not sure on who your counselor should be, I'd give her a try. She might surprise you. She did me.

Ihsmel has been a wonderful counselor; warm, understanding, and insightful. Her lessons have helped me learn and realize things both on my own and with her assistance. With her guidance and support, I have made great progress toward my personal goals. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who needs a gentle and understanding approach in therapy/counseling.

Ihsmel is a wonderful counselor who is very good at listening and choosing the right moment to interject with input. Her sessions feel like a guided lesson as opposed to a straight lecture and I really appreciate how she lets you figure things out for yourself. I find very respectful and easy to talk to.

She knows how to strike a balance of being a professional and at the same time giving it a personal touch. I have had 2 sessions so far and hoping others would good great too.

Ihsmel is very understanding when you talk to her. She has great insight to help your situation get better. Everything she said was enormously helpful when you get into practice everyday life. It’s a long journey but her timely guidance will get you through when you need the most help!
