What I appreciate most about Martine is that she allows me to direct my own therapy. I asked for more listening and reflection from her instead of teaching. Because of her flexibility to give me more agency during the session, I've gotten a lot of value just out of my first few sessions.
I am so thankful for Martine. She has helped me tremendously and I would highly recommend her! She offers great advice is is a good listener.
I just started using this site a few weeks ago and was paired with a wonderful therapist. She is wonderful asking me questions that I may not have thought of before and walking me through everything.
