Ms. Best has been incredibly helpful. I have been working with her for a year now and I have never felt more confident than I do now with managing my stress and anxiety. She truly listens and offers so much insight into how my mind works, how to process and reflect on things and how to use evidence in order to shut down my anxiety.
She has taught me how to better communicate with people, determine my needs, set boundaries with myself and others, manage my health difficulties, and even work through career decisions. She has helped me through my most difficult times and has celebrated and encouraged me during my best.
She is an incredibly talented therapist whom I have learned so much from and have been able to work through so much with since I’ve started a year ago. She has always been timely, responsive via chat, checks in regularly, and all in all has provided such incredible care!
Thank you, Ms. Best!

Razaria is attentive and empathetic. She listens without judgment and offers helpful insights on ways to deal with whatever I'm facing. It feels good to have someone that I can depend on to give unbiased opinions and even challenge my way of thinking when necessary.
