Working with Talunja has changed my life. She offers profound guidance in bite-sized pieces. She has never once been judgmental and only offers support when I feel like I've regressed. She responds in a timely manner, and listens with empathy during our live sessions. 10/10!

I was skeptical about starting therapy but after my first session I felt like i was in the right place & have had the pleasure of working with Talunja for about a year & half now. Very responsive & accommodating. She’s empathetic. She is great at helping to declutter the mind. I look forward to every session

My sessions with Talunja have been transformative. She's a great listener, remembers the things that I mention and brings them up in future sessions, and has helped me reframe and start moving past some of my deepest traumas. I've grown immensely through my sessions with Talunja and I'd strongly recommend her to anybody.
