LaQuita Suggs Is a great listener. She has paid close attention — and I assume took good notes — back to my first session. She’ll bring up something I told her in the beginning of our time together, in a super helpful way. She’s very knowledgeable about the subjects that apply to my situation, and she challenges me in a kind way that helps me identify blind spots. I’m having a great experience with LaQuita.

LaQuita provides the right amount of empathy to help me feel cared for and understood, but also gives it to me straight, including things that might be hard for me to hear or accept, but that I need. It has helped me see sides to my situation that a friend or loved one may not have the insight to or the courage to speak up about. It's nice having LaQuita in my corner. I've learned a lot from her.

I never had a therapist who was able to identify my thinking errors, show me what to do to correct them, and also help me with questions about life and dating as I’m experiencing them in the moment. She also gives great homework!
