Shashana has such a welcoming and personable demeanor. I can unload such nonsensical emotions and thoughts without judgement from her. I feel so comfortable being completely vulnerable and honest about my life. I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude for her and her expertise and advice. It’s beyond evident that she truly cares. I highly recommend anyone in need to consider Shashana as their therapist.
