I have seen therapists in the past and Lelia is by far the best therapist I have ever worked with. She helps me, and continues to help me get through any issues I am having in a healthy way and she never makes me feel uncomfortable. I am truly grateful that I get to work with her and actually look forward to my sessions.

It's obvious Lelia cares about the people she is working with and wants to be of assistance. Her friendly demeanor and frequent check-ins make it easy to feel listened to, which naturally encourages a more open discussion. She is quick to initiate communication and to respond.

Lelia is fantastic! She’s empathetic and offers clear advice based on my situation. I feel that she hears my concerns and responds in a genuine manner. She makes me feel comfortable which in turn allows me to articulate my needs.

Lelia is an awesome counselor, she’s definitely assisted me during these struggling times. Allowing me to realize it’s okay to feel guilty but you’re in control of yourself not anyone else. I have already recommended her to family & friends

Work with me!
