Latoya has undoubted been the best therapist i’ve ever had. i’ve been through countless therapists, psychologists, and counsellors and no one comes close to her. She was always available for me when i was in crisis, checked in on my progress regularly, and offered realistic and sustainable solutions to help with my struggles. thank you so much Latoya, you’re truly incredible!
