Latoya is a kind and loving soul. She lets you express what’s on your mind and she will respond with the most empowering and understanding support that can uplift you to levels of yourself you didn’t expect. I love how she checks in with me and I’m grateful to finally find someone who can help me throughout this time of struggle and confusion in my life.
