Tina is amazing! Definitely a great match for me. It was great to hear about her experience in the field and how many different areas during our first call. I would definitely recommend Tina, she is kind, understanding and real about what you bring to each session. I really enjoyed the over the phone meetings, no pressure of video, or driving to an appt, but could be comfortable and relaxed in my own space.
