Ophelia is one of the best therapist I’ve had. We’ve been working together for several months and in that short time she’s helped me gain a deeper understanding of myself so I can make the changes to lead a more rewarding life.

I have had 2 sessions with Ophelia so far and she is by far the best therapist I have ever had. She really and truly listens and treats me with respect. I’ve had bad experiences with previous therapists so I am a little untrusting with them and have put off having further therapy because of my negative past experiences. Ophelia is non-judgemental and non-condescending. She has really restored my faith in therapists. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Ophelia.

Ophelia is an amazing therapist. I was a little skeptical having never done this, but I went into it willing to try. While I've only had 3 sessions she has given me much insight on some of the things I'm dealing with. Id highly recommend her!
