I look forward to working with you.

Sinora is a wonderful woman of God that is kind, compassionate, caring, and listens very well. She helps me see things in a positive light. She is always on time, responds to my messages, and have a great attitude. She helps me face things that I have ignored unintentionally and acknowledging patterns that aren’t good for my growth while replacing these habits with positive solutions, practices, and new positive habits. I’ve actually recommended her to several of my friends.

I’ve been working with Sinora for a few months now. She has helped me understand my feelings a little better and what I can focus on to change outcomes or change my perspective. I like that she always supportive and suggests tools, coping skill and assignments to help me beyond our sessions. Healing takes time, and I’m so comfortable being so open and vulnerable with her. She creates a safe space to open up and I’m grateful for it.
