I have been going to weekly therapy with Shaunequa for about 6 months, and this is the best experience I've ever had with therapy. I really like attending video sessions from the comfort of my apartment. She is so supportive of my goals. When I am spiraling, she helps pull me out of it. I can be very honest with her (and myself) and there is no judgement at all.
