Luqretia listens with compassion and understanding, she is warm, friendly and makes me feel comfortable during the time we have together. Virtual counseling support sounds like it can be impersonal, but it doesn’t feel that way with Luqretia, it’s a safe and welcoming space!

Lucretia has been great. She’s giving me tools to overcome my guilt and help to love “me” better. Her assignments are helpful and I look forward to our next appointment
