Sylvia understood my needs right away and was very effective in helping me to reach my goals of expressing my needs and understanding my relationships. With her help I was able to resolve issues that I had no control over and learn to relate successfully within my relationships.

I haven't been the same since completing therapy with Sylvia. Working through some of my difficulties and healing parts of them with her unlocked a different type of strength within me I struggled to tap into before. I'm thankful for my time with her because now I can confidently move forward on my own. I'm not magically and perfectly healed, and still have problems I am working on, of course. It's just the ability to handle them independently with a support system as backup that fills me with gratitude. Sometimes all it takes is a little push with being heard and seen by a trusted professional who understands.
