Mimi is the best. She helped me so much when I was going through a rough time. I don’t need to speak to her face to face as much anymore but I like knowing she is there if I need help. I would 100% recommend her.
A force of positive support and professional responses. I appreciate her ability to assess and reflect in a friendly and frank manner.
Omg. The most sweetest person I’ve ever met. She’s given the best advice and although the time difference is awkward she’s always making time to check up on me and her sessions are always in perfect time. Honestly like a best friend to me :)
Mimi can be the most understanding person in my life at times when I feel like I have no one, she listens to me and supports me in every way. I feel like I’m not alone when I have Mimi,
And that means so much to me, and I appreciate it so much.
Mimi is so nice and helpful, honestly like a ray of sunshine.
Mimi was incredibly supportive through such a difficult time, she responded to messages quickly and was able to do calls and video calls with her on a regular basis which meant alot. She is incredibly warm and caring and felt she was really there for us, and she is really easy to open up to and share things with, I never felt judged, I felt I could say whatever I felt and could speak freely. Thanks so much Mimi for all the support in such a difficult time.
Mimi's advice has helped me so much, so far! She is a great listener and is that person I can lean on.
