Written by A.L. on Dec 03, 2018 after counseling with Marisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Marisa is an extremely caring and empathetic counsellor. I have only been working with her for a couple weeks so far, but she is a great listener. When I tell her about a strategy that hasn’t worked for me she is always ready with a new idea. I can always count on her to respond to me promptly.
