Kalisha understands how to communicate with her clients things that she sees that we wouldn't see while in a situation - much like that parable about the fish looking for the water while swimming in it. If you're emotionally distressed about a situation and need a breather, Kalisha can help you install that boundary and work through the emotions to clearly see which behavior is enabling the situation to continue. With humor, kind frankness and sensitivity, Kalisha has helped me and I believe she can help you too.

Very kind and understanding. Relatable and relevant thinking. She has good perspective and can make you think differently if you don’t see a different way.

Kalisha is a wonderful therapist! When something goes on in my life, I look forward to discussing it with her. I strongly value my conversations with her as they me realign. She is kind, a great listener, and offers valuable input. I'd strongly recommend her to others.

I transitioned to a new job and was struggling with anxiety and had lost all of my confidence. Kalisha was a strong support to help me succeed. She provided me with tools to control my anxiety and regain my confidence.
