I am greatly appreciative of Marquita. I’ve talked about some things lately I’ve never really talked about and have walked out the ost two sessions contemplative and taking a deeper dive into myself. I feel like she listens or at least tries to hear me because I feel like I drop a lot on her. But, I’m not uncomfortable and that says a lot for me.

Marquita is an excellent therapist, a kind and caring soul. She’s helped me immensely with stress and anxiety as I’m going through a divorce. She’s remarkably talented and insightful, and I’m grateful to have her in my life.

For the most part, I was seeking someone who I could share some of my life's issues with who would not be judgmental because I had a lot to unload. Fortunately for me, Marquita has been excellent providing necessary feedback yet being a great person to talk to. Glad I finally chose to use BetterHelp. I have been considering it for some time.
