During my first therapy session with Shaa-Ista Simmons-Wilcox, I was impressed by how easily we were able to communicate, and how safe and comfortable she made me feel. Ms. Shaa-Ista Simmons-Wilcox expertly gathered information about my personal history and used her knowledge and expertise to develop a personalized treatment plan that aligned with my therapy goals. She provided education and perspective that helped me understand how my past experiences had influenced my present actions and interactions.

Ms. Shaa-Ista Simmons-Wilcox is honest, direct, and transparent in her communication, which gives me a better understanding of myself and my life situations. She encourages me to build myself up and create healthy boundaries in my life. Her energy and presence create a safe, loving, and honest space for self-reflection. I am confident that her treatment plan and therapy sessions will strengthen my self-esteem and self-love and allow me to stand in my strength.

I have a lot to work on, but Ms. Shaa-Ista Simmons-Wilcox guides me step-by-step, focusing on one topic or goal at a time. I am thankful that she is my therapist, and I wouldn't want anyone else. I look forward to each therapy session with her, as I always feel refreshed and awakened at another step forward on the right path and becoming and believing in the best highest version of me.

Over the past three months of dealing with many life events, Shaa-Ista has assisted me with coming to terms with and identifying what I have endured in my past. She has helped me with the healing process of being a better functioning human being in this society. Indeed supportive and communicative.

Shaa-Ista has been amazing! She is very kind and understanding. Talking to her I feel heard and cared about. She gives me tools and homework which is very helpful in my healing journey! I would recommend everyone to her who’s going through something and wants to talk to someone who is “real” with you! Thank you for everything already I’m very excited about this process!
