I love how Tinecia truly listens and gives me resources, homework, and several strategies that point me in the right direction. Tinecia is very well knowledged about emotional and mental conditions, and she doesn’t pretend to know what I’m going through. She remembers what we talked from the previous session, and we pick up right where we left off. I took me a few therapists to find Tinecia, and I am very grateful. I am also grateful for her other clients that are fortunate to work with her as well.
