I like the fact that she is open when I speak about anything and being open helps me to process what I am going through, she also does great with helping me “live “ a situation and prepare myself for what I need to do to get through the situation.

I enjoy my weekly chats with Shamika, it’s very refreshing and sets a hopeful tone for the rest of the week. Thank you for your help!

I felt much better after talking to her and I was shocked about how much anger I had inside of me. I didn't realize it until after I had finished the 1st session with her.
