Karina, is a professional that allows personable communication . She connects, listens well, gentle, and yet committed to helping her clients achieve their resolve, their understanding of process and how to arrive with success through progress. And, to think I was very hesitant about sitting down with a therapist to discuss my grief and pain.

My therapist, Karina, really listens to what I have to say about my mental problems. She truly understands the struggles I go through and provides helpful ways to overcome them. I just hope, eventually, I will cure myself and rid of all the stress, past trauma, and anxiety that I have.
