Dr. Subawickrama is the best. The knowledge and expertise she brings to the conversation is amazing. She really listens and can quickly assess and put together a plan. She has lots of resources to help really understand the underlying causes and also the opportunities.

Wonderful

Written on Apr 26, 2024 after therapy with Sugandika for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

I find my experience with Dr. Subawickrama's to be very positive. I've been in in-person therapy for years and haven't done as much work/ self reflection as I have with Dr. Subawickrama in less than a month. I would recommend her to anyone who's ready for therapy and are willing to work on the assignments she gives .

Dr. Sugi is sweet and provided me very valuable information and insight. She is a great listener as well and is very professional. I feel like she understands my needs and what I'm trying to convey
