Vanity makes therapy so easy! She is patient, professional, personable, and so helpful. For me it was like having that friend that teaches you, guides you, and understands. She really breaks things down and takes the alone feeling that comes when you’re going through anything. She gives progressing advice and exercises that relates and helps with the growth of overcoming. I truly appreciate her and recommend her highly to anyone.

Vanity is amazing! I have only had a few sessions with her but so far so good. I feel comfortable talking with her and she really cares. I want to say I highly recommend her but I don't think I want to share her! Lol

With Vanity I feel like I really have my safe space to talk about my problems and heart ache without any judgement. She has also helped a lot with me coping with my anxiety and dark thoughts. Her positivity radiates and I love her as my counselor :)
