Stephanie has been my therapist for months now. I was waiting for a few months to write my review so I could truly give my perspective on the changes with her being my therapist.
Stephanie is very knowledgeable on varied aspects in life. She takes the time to understand my issues and my perspective and really keeps closely connected with my life events. She offers great perspective on situations and my problems, and has made me view things with a very unbiased outlook altogether.
I really like how consistent, warm and encouraging she is. She adds a lot of value to my life, as I feel much more confident in my ability to navigate life and make the right decisions. Talking to her is like talking to a very knowledgeable friend. Definitely recommend her !
