I have only been seeing Sylvia for a few weeks now and I’m so grateful to have found her. She’s already helped me so much. I appreciate how real she is and that even through we talk about a lot of serious things we still manage to crack a few jokes and laugh together. If you enjoy a very personable therapist Sylvia is IT.
Sylvia is very responsive to my queries and is working on coming up with solutions that can be helpful to me.
