Tihesha is really makes me feel understood, supported and listened to. She makes me feel she goes above and beyond to give me support. I feel she really cares.
Tihesha is a deep, thorough and caring counsellor who takes time to consider what I say which isn’t always easy for her as she can only respond to me based on what I tell her and I do tend to jump from one subject to another in a haphazard way making it difficult for her to keep up as I have so much to offload.
Tihesha is warm and understanding. She really met me where I was at and it was really the type of thing I was looking for in a therapist.
I am grateful to share and not feel so alone. I thought I was going crazy in certain situations and it has been comforting knowing she understands and offers perspective I had not thought of before. I am better able to recognize my triggers and work on myself. She has given me a light to a path I didn’t think was reachable. I got out of rock bottom through her help when I felt like I would be there forever. I am hopeful for my future because of her guidance. A weight was lifted to know it’s okay to not be okay.
She's pretty patient and I extremely admire that about her. She works hard to give me critical and straight forward tips to be better.
She is always spot on and able to give words to my feelings so well.
Great therapist; very perceptive and kind. I haven’t worked with Tihesha for too long, but I look forward to the growth and healing we will bring forth by working together.
Tihesha Lemon-Deacon is the best therapist I've ever had. In less than two weeks she has helped so much already. I'm dealing with stuff I've ignored for over 20 years, traumas I didn't realize that I had or that they affected me. She has so much expertise & ability to help with really complicated diagnoses & situations. I definitely recommend. She is already helping me with stuff that psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, doctors, coaches, books, videos, courses, medications, etc (I've tried a lot of stuff) have been unable to help me with for 30+ years. Even one of the most senior, highly decorated and most expensive psychiatrists in my country, was unable to help. But Tihesha knows how best to help me, & knows all the different methods and styles of helping, better than all the other specialists who couldn't help me. I've been on very many different medications and I have been diagnosed with many different things over the years. But finally I can move on with my life now and get better, after decades of suffering, being unable to work, making bad choices, etc. If you've tried everything else, and think you can't get better, (or if you haven't tried anything before) I think Tihesha will definitely help you. From my experience. And she gives you the help you need tailored to you personally, so it works.
I have just started working with Tihesha Lemon-Deacon and had one video session but I am already amazed at her insight and empathy. She has such an aura of trustworthiness that makes you feel comfortable and helps so much to open up and talk about difficult issues. I am looking forward to proceed with my counseling with her.
She is wonderful. I was so skeptical at first but she quickly made me feel comfortable. She is patient & beyond understanding. I feel like I definitely was matched with the right counselor. This is experience is much better than the in office counseling I had previously tried. I hope to become more active in my counseling as I feel it will be very helpful.
