Have never had an experience of not seeing a therapist face-to-face, and yet, somehow, Jarah Torrez-Williams pulls it off. I'm 75 and have had therapists throughout my life, and Jarah is in the top 5 that I've had.

Jarah is amazing. She’s helped me out with family issues, addition in the family & grief. She always made me feel like I wasn’t the only one who dealt with additions in the family. She listened to everything & helped me focus on one issue at a time. She was always down to get to the root of everything. Jarah is great, 100% recommend!!
