Kamara is an amazing person and has a great personality. She has helped me get through a lot of my issues at work and through my grief of lost loved ones.

She is so accommodating and kind to me. I couldn’t be more grateful to have been partnered with her, and she also encompasses how the healing process can be so fun!

Written by L.E. on Jul 16, 2021 after therapy with Kamara for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and career difficulties

Kamara is kind, patient and listens with intention. Through all of that she helps pin point what is actually at play in any situation, behavior(s) and beliefs. She actively works with you to move forward in life while looking back on what got you here. She is by far the best counselor I’ve worked with over the past decade.

I appreciate the positive feedback and relatability that Kamara has with me. She is open and able to relate well to my current struggles.

Ms. Kamara Marsh is the best counselor I’ve ever had! She gives great advice, is honest, kind, understanding, and super compassionate! My depression has gotten better since I started working with her.

One of the best, if not the best.

Kami has helped me begin to help myself with tools to improve my life, and I totally trust her advice and can tell her anything knowing I will not be judged by my past or any thoughts I have.

Kami is open-minded and insightful; a wonderful listener and so easy to talk to. She’s great at helping you set goals and taking them seriously. Would recommend!

I like Kamara's approach. She struck the right notes with me and I have confidence that further sessions will bring insights that are applicable to the situation that led me to counseling.

It has been a pleasure working with Kamara. She has been very supportive throughout the sessions. It was helpful to identify my thinking errors at the beginning and set goals together to put things in practice and measure my improvements. Kamara offered a different perspective which was very insightful and helped me to free myself from anxiety. I wish I asked for help sooner!

Kamara has been crucial on my healing journey. She is compassionate, genuine, professional and down to earth. I feel safe, valued and respected during our sessions and really appreciate her realness; she has a way of communicating perspective that is very helpful. I look forward to working with Kamara for the foreseeable future.

Kamara is a great therapist- even better person

Written by A.L. on Jun 03, 2020 after therapy with Kamara for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, and anger management

I appreciate her ability to listen, share her own experiences, give examples of what is described, and being honest with me. The homework of recognizing my beliefs has been very helpful.

Kami is amazing and she's helped me a lot with my confidence and making be more assertive.

Written by S.O. on May 10, 2020 after therapy with Kamara for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

Kamara has worked so hard with me getting me to understand myself and others for the better. Her understanding and respect have been a godsend as other counsellors reflect your feelings back onto you without helping you see what’s really happening. Coming to terms with myself, and my circumstances, was impossible without her.

Fantastic, she's helping me a lot.

Written by V.I. on Apr 30, 2020 after therapy with Kamara for 2 weeks

Kamara has some solid expertise and formation with counseling and helping people overcome loss in their lives based on her own life experience. A very good counselor, too bad I can't afford to continue counseling with her right now, but I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for online counseling.

Written by J.O. on Mar 15, 2020 after therapy with Kamara for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Kami and myself have only been in contact for two sessions but I can already tell she’s the best therapist I’ve ever had. She is very knowledgeable and insightful, as well as being a very caring and considerate person and a great listener. She has a really great sense of humor as well, so I can really recommend her and am looking forward to more sessions.

It is still early in the process, but so far I love meeting with Kamara. I was so skeptical of this app at first, but after talking with her Ive become more comfortable. I never thought I'd say this, but I really look forward to our next session. I would love to meet her someday.
