Rita has been a huge help since day one. She's never judged me and has been honest with me in the ways I need her to be. She's always kind, respectful and open to understanding how I need help. Her resources have always been beneficial, and I feel comfortable every session. Thank you, Rita!

So far I have felt very comfortable and understood by Ms. Wood. She is a great listener and provides feedback and tips that help. I know it’s especially hard for my generation (gen z) to find a therapist and I definitely would recommend her!
