Tavonda let's me talk when I feel I need to talk, and she nudges conversation on subjects I am less chatty about. She encourages me not to dismiss my emotions, but also not to dwell, and she gives me tools to help myself. I feel significantly more in control of myself since we started sessions. She is an excellent counselor! I'm really glad that I found her.

I had extreme trepidation about any type of therapy. Tavonda put my mind at ease within the first ten minutes of our first session. Maybe it was just luck of the draw, but I feel perfectly matched.
She is wonderful!
