I feel that my concerns and thoughts are heard, and that Ms. Boadi offers words of acceptance and words of encouragement. I've seen my perspective change with her help. It makes me excited for the work we have still to do.

I was really impressed with Ms Boadi and would def love to continue working with her of finances weren’t such a huge factor right now. She was super attentive and personable - extremely refreshing and reassuring for someone like me who’s fairly new to therapy (2 years). I am hopeful when I’m in a better position we can be matched again bc I feel she was a great match for me.

Ophelia Boadi is a thoughtful and wise advisor: she listens, she lets you know she's heard what you've said, and she asks questions that help you discover more about yourself and your situation. She also remembers a thread that needs revisiting and follows up in subsequent consults. I enjoy working with her very much and appreciate the insights she has helped me explore.

Ophelia was a great help to me, and did a superb job at creating an open, comfortable, and productive space in our sessions. I would have liked to have had more sessions together, but I would still definitely recommend her to anyone who could use some support and guidance!
