Shanda is amazing, she really cares for those who need therapy. She takes the time to listen and provide feedback, shows she is passionate at what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs therapy.

I've only had one session with Shanda so far, but she messages occasionally between sessions. She is easy to talk to and a really good listener. She seems to understand my problems and has a plan for it. She has managed to actually make me excited about something that I was reluctant against for so many years, i.e. therapy.
