Written by S.A. on Mar 31, 2021 after therapy with Latasha for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Every conversation with Dr. Latasha leaves me feeling good about myself. She notices and acknowledges the things we wouldn't within our relationships with others and ourselves. I feel a lot of positive vibes from her. She is like a knowledgeable friend. I have seen other therapists before but she is the best one by far. I feel lucky to have her as my therapist.

Dr McIlwaine listens like a compassionate and insightful friend, and has helped me understand how some of my thinking relates to my past as well as my patterns. I've found our sessions are really helping me live more intentionally.

She listens and she is beaming with contagious positivity and insight.

Written by E.R. on Jan 21, 2021 after therapy with Latasha for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues

Dr. McIlwaine has helped me through the most difficult relationship issue I have ever had. Difficult because it is the only one I have ever had. In a short period she has helped to gain my trust and speak the hard truth while being a cheerleader for my goals. I've been able to tell her things that I've only told two people in my life, and she is the only impartial one.

My experience with Dr. McIlwaine has been very good, just the right balance of listening and understanding while providing resources to move me toward workable solutions for the challenges I am dealing with.

Dr. McIlwaine listens and makes sure she understands what I'm saying. She follows my random trains of thought, but she also redirects me back to the main point when needed. I'm very comfortable discussing anything with her, as she's non-judgemental. She's able to switch gears and listen/advise about a variety of issues. Would recommend my friends to her, for sure.

Dr. Mcllwaine is very responsive and trying to help me in so many ways, I feel really good when I talk to her.

Written by S.U. on Aug 19, 2020 after therapy with Latasha for 2 weeks

Dr McIlwaine is non-judgmental and insightful. Talking to her has been the best decision, and such a relief to feel able to speak openly, and, as it is the first time I have undertaken counselling, with guidance.
