I have seen MANY therapists over the years but Shameka has been INCREDIBLE. She is supportive and also challenges me the way I need to improve my life. I am SO glad that I found her!

I had several sessions with Shameka regarding aid with parental issues and work.
She does a very good job with provide direct feedback with issues that are going on and gives "Homework" assignments to continue working on issues on your time. I find this to be very helpful as her approach is to find resolution with some of the deeper issues a patient could be facing.
She is responsive when it comes to messaging and always keeps the focus on the key root of issues (even if you go on a tangent.)
I would highly recommend seeing her.
