My sessions with LaFarra has been insightful and challenging. She is an active listener when I need her to be but she also encourages me to step out of my comfort zone, physically and/or mentally. Plus, she has provided tools to help me get through daily anxious thoughts. I'm a first timer on this platform and I am happy that I was matched with her.

LaFarra is amazing. She’s a great listener, and she always knows what to say and how to get to the bottom of any issue discussed.
