Written by D.A. on Nov 19, 2020 after counseling with Liza for 2 weeks

Liza is a great therapist ! She listens to what you have to say, gives advice and pointers on how to cope with whatever is on your mind about any issue. She does respond quick to any messages i send and wants to know how my week is going and of course is there anything that she can do during the week to assist me in anyway. Definitely would recommend this Website along with Liza's expertise.
