Salena has truly helped me see myself in a different light while addressing issues I actively face. She really listens and responds with her expertise, and her care is genuine and true. She is my first experience with counseling and she made me feel heard and comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone looking to explore counseling and address their personal growth and any roadblocks they may be facing.
