I’ve been seeing Maria for over a year now, going on 2 soon and she is amazing. I followed her from another platform because I just couldn’t see myself having another therapist like her. She really listens to me and lets me get my truth out. She’s helped me grow into my true self.
Written on Dec 23, 2021 after therapy with Maria for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem
