I wanted a therapist where I would be able to learn and gain insight to my life from their advice from the first meeting. She met that expectation. Even in simple tips they had great meaning in my life and allowed me to think differently.

Kumi is so wonderful! She makes you feel like your relationship is more then a client. She feels like a friend to me. She pays attention to detail and makes sure the space you create together is exactly what you need. I can't recommend her enough!
