Miss King is definitely an asset to better help and to me and others. As soon as I received her warm and pretty smile, just from her positive energy and calming demeanor that I was in the right hands. We’ve only had one session together so far, but that’s my fault. She is always there when I need her, she gives Ms worksheets to help me through, and I value her. I know she is going to help me be a better woman and get to where I need to be in my life. May happen in one month, six months or two years, but I’m sticking through it . I know with the upmost confidence that she is the right provider for me.

Within the first 10 minutes of speaking with LaKendra, I knew she listened and wanted to help me. I feel like therapy works well for those who are willing to open up and are ready to do what it takes to improve their lives. I have my second session schedules tomorrow and I’m super excited. Thank you, LaKendra for not judging me and listening to me.

We are just a couple of sessions in but Lakendra sees me and I feel like I finally have someone I can talk to about it all without judgment. She is super supportive and attentive and focused on helping me get better. I like how's she's able to anticipate my needs and how the exercises she gives me resonates with what I'm going through and what I need even without me saying them.

Initially I was hesitant about therapy until this app was recommended through a family friend. I am very proud pleased with Lakendra. She’s providing me with a lot of insight into my life and solutions on how to make it better while addressing my concerns. She’s shown me how to manage emotions better and my relationships. And I see a dramatic difference in the way I interact and deal with obstacles now. I sleep better and generally a more clear direction and positive outlook on my future. Lakendra is passionate about her job and I am great full for the balance she’s brought and continues to bring in my life.

Lakendra is brilliant. She helps gain a different perspective on my issues. It's really good to talk to her without having to worry about how my thoughts/feelings will affect her. I would recommend her to anyone.

Work with me!
