Lora has helped me tremendously throughout the last few months. She is a great listener and offers sound and reasonable advice and never pushes you to share more than you’re comfortable with. I look forward to our sessions every week

Lora makes me feel at ease and she’s very understanding. She won’t judge but she’ll make me see my options and validate my feelings. She’s very supportive and will check in on me in between sessions. Talking to her really makes me feel better and gives me courage to tackle my emotions.

I didn't take much time to trust Lora. She guides me carefully how to navigate my stories and that gives me space to think about my context.
