Written on Dec 05, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, parenting issues, and self esteem

Tasheena has been a lifesaver, I’ve never been so comfortable and been able to open up and not feel judged. She’s helped me so much, and I couldn’t recommend her enough. She’s an exceptional therapist!

Written on Dec 03, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

There’s really no adequate words to explain how amazing Tasheena is. She is incredibly good at what she does and she is full of compassion, empathy, understanding, and intelligence. She is encouraging, super accommodating of my crazy schedule, and always has excellent insight and feedback no matter what I throw at her (and it’s a lot). I feel like I’m talking to my best friend, but one who is totally committed to helping me the best version of myself, even when I forget my purpose in my anxiety filled brain. She is amazing. I am SO grateful for her- I can’t say enough great things about her and for this app for bringing her into my life, she is very important to my mental health stability and I really look forward to our sessions each week.

Tasheena is awesome! She prioritizes what I want to talk about and I really feel like she listens to me. She is challenging but supportive and I know that when I leave a session I will feel better and have an idea of what direction I want to go.

Written on Nov 15, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 1 year on issues concerning depression, and self esteem

Tasheena is an incredible, caring, smart, and honest therapist, among other great qualities. I’ve been speaking to her for about a year now, and she’s helped me grow tremendously in that time — I’m in a happier, healthier place in my life, in large part because of her. Everyone deserves a therapist like Tasheena!

Written on Aug 22, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 3 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I’ve seen a number of different therapists in my life and I am grateful beyond words that I got connected with Tasheena. My favorite thing about her is that she keeps me accountable and is very action oriented - I leave every session with a plan on what I’m going to do to try to improve my mental health.

Written on Aug 01, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I don’t know if it’s luck or just an extremely good job but better help, but I have been perfectly matched with my therapist. She seems to understand the struggles of my profession and I would strongly encourage anyone in my field to talk to her!!

Written on Jul 28, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 1 year on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Tasheena was the perfect match for me. She was open and easy to talk to right off the bat; building real rapport from the start helped me gain so many insights through our conversations. She helped me in ways that are difficult to explain, but I feel more confident in myself, more self-assured about my own mind/decisions, and better equipped to deal with moments rife with anxiety. Therapy with Tasheena was an exercise in real growth and self-care; what a gift.

Tasheena has given me a space where I can completely be myself. She lets me talk through my issues while offering input but ultimately, and what I’ve been trying to do on by myself
unsuccessfully, let’s me think through a resolve on my own.

Written on Jan 31, 2022 after therapy with Tasheena for 6 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Tasheena is one of those people that you meet and are instantly comfortable around. She's everything the other reviews say and more. She's honest, she's genuine, and her immense intellect continues to impress me each week. Without knowing it she saved and forever changed my life. With her help, I am not the same man that I was when I started therapy. I now have a much better grasp on life and relationships and know how to put in the work to continue to become a more healthy person. I hope to one day take these teachings and help others. So Tasheena, you're the best therapist there ever will be and one of the best people I've ever met. You're 1 in 7.9 billion. From the bottom of my heart.. THANK YOU for everything.

Tasheena is a perfect therapist. She is a very real human being who will walk through issues with you and won’t always try to come up with an answer but will actually let you know she wants to spend a little more time thinking through next steps while being their for you in the waiting. I appreciate her genuine care for her patients, I’ve never had another therapist like her.
