Talking to Lissette Ayala has been a huge help to me. She has helped me to get clarity on situations I’ve been worried about or overthinking. She’s also given me helpful techniques to set me up for positive thinking/interactions and relationships in the future, which was my goal of therapy.

My sessions with Lissette have been been a very important part of managing my anxiety and depression. Lissette listened to my concerns and experiences and helped me to recognize the tools I already had as well as helping me find some clarity within myself and my feelings. I was really unsure how I would feel about online counseling but I am pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I felt.

Lisette is an amazing therapist, she makes you feel like nothing else matters during the sessions. She gave me a framework to get my life back on track - it's working. I am mentally stronger and healthier after only a few sessions, I'm so grateful to work with her and continue with her on my journey, inspired to continue healing myself.
