Very wonderful, supportive, and kind guidance. She really provides a safe space to discuss topics and has been very encouraging, so I enjoyed working with her.

Dr Roberts is very knowledgeable and understanding. She listens to my issues and responds appropriately. And gives me new ideas and things to consider.

Shirin is warm, kind, and experienced as a therapist. She always makes me feel better after our sessions. She listens and reflects on what I say and offers me suggestions when I ask for them (but she doesn't force her opinion or suggestions on me at all). I love talking with her and I'm grateful for her. She is a wonderful therapist.

She is so non judgemental and supportive! I can always count on her to say something that will help me with either perspective or encouragement of positive self talk. I recommend her 100000%
