I've been through a lot in the past year. I couldn't have done it or have the confidence I have now if it weren't for the rapport and sessions with Manzie. Her professionalism, willingness to listen, care and compassion, and prayer were and still are huge to me.
I would highly recommend her to others.

Manzie and I connected right away. Words I would use to describe Manzie are kind, knowledgeable, calm, insightful, woman of faith. I am very thankful for her support and guidance.

I’ve only had one call with Manzie so far and it was almost immediately like the most calm, peaceful, caring conversations. Those nerves I had because this was my first time reaching out to anyone, ever, were high strung. That feeling eased almost instantly and just from our introduction call, I was holding my head higher with a renewed hope that despite everything going on in my life, there is strength there to persevere. Thank you Manzie.

Therapy with Manzie feels, to me, like a warm hug & loads of reassurance that I can work through my struggles with God as my guide. Her expertise has already served me so well & has given me an abundance of different, eye-opening perspectives to a particular difficulty I’ve experienced for half my life. She lays the groundwork for attainable goals to where I feel like I am making progress, but not eating the entire elephant at once. It is a striking balance that has blessed my life tremendously. I highly recommend therapy with Manzie & am so grateful I found her!
