Shell is always very attentive and supportive of me. She calls me on my bad habits and helps me to see the patterns in a way that shows me the balance of me being both an individual and a product of my environment and upbringing. She helps me to be accountable for my actions because of and despite these truths. I learn so much from her after every session.

Shell has taken the time to really get to know me as a person. Even when I’m apprehensive about bringing a topic up, she has a way of making me comfortable and drawing it out of me. She has helped me navigate through new chapters of my life. She gives me things to consider and tools to effectively make decisions. Shell has been an instrumental part on my journey of self love and growth.
