Reviews

Written by T.R. on Oct 01, 2021 after therapy with Rita for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and adhd

Rita helped me immensely in just 5 sessions. Before speaking with her, I was stressed in a way that was affecting my quality of life, and my relationship with my partner.
Rita was able to put into perspective what I was going through, and help me put a plan together to deal with my stress and anxiety. I will be able to use the tools she gave me for the rest of my life.
Her practice may have been more spiritual than I was used to, but the results came out of the solutions she proposed, and the work she asked me to do. I cannot thank her enough for the help she gave me. I would recommend her to anyone.
