Came at just the right time in my life. I just had to get over the hill! She helped tremendously

Written on May 29, 2023 after therapy with J'Kea for 1 month on issues concerning depression, grief, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

She is so compassionate, gentle, understanding but also direct with a great sense of tact. I was a mess. Ugly crying, shaking, falling apart…she took all of that and made me feel…human. She is incredibly empathetic and genuinely cares to know and understand me. Not just my issues. She almost feels like a friend I’ve had since grade school or something.
