She is very patient, empathetic, understanding, and relatable. She helped me feel confident and capable, and taught me to communicate on difficult issues and to set boundaries. I'm really glad I spoke to her.

Margaret Fonseca is a very kind and considerate person to talk to. I felt encouraged to make some positive changes in my life to help me along my journey. She has a gentle nature about her as well as a warm smile that made me feel like I could open up to her without fear of any judgement. She was also able to give me some insight on the medication that I was previously prescribed, and she gave me some peace of mind during a rough time in my life. In the brief time that I worked with her, I was able to gain some insight on things that I have been struggling with, as well as my relationship with my parents and my spiritual beliefs.
