Since day 1 I have gotten the guidance and assistance I have needed, and everyday is very different right now, from Tina. She gives amazing homework and exercises, but most importantly is helping me learn how to handle my daily struggles while aiding me in my confidence of self. I am so grateful for being matched with her through this process.

From the very first conversation it felt as though I had known Tina for a long time. I immediately felt comfortable enough to dive into the “tough stuff.” I’m thankful for Tina’s naturally genuine nature that makes each session feel like a comfortable conversation.
