She’s a great listener. She actively listens to whatever your going through and or dealing with and gives wise counsel and offers different tools to get you back on track to address your problems and or issues in a healthy way and manner. Best counselor that I have ever had and one of the reasons I continue with BetterHelp is LaJoya honestly.
