She listens and makes sure you're heard, which is something I think anyone could use. She uses techniques I haven't used before and makes me feel comfortable in trying them out.
Venise is great! I really feel like she listens to what I am saying, and she helps me set realistic goals for myself. Because I was matched with her based on my answers when I signed up, what she has to say is really helpful to what I am going through. Should she be determined to be the best fit for what you are going through, you will not regret your time.
Venise is very kind, gentle and supportive. Definitely what I need to feel heard.
Venise is a huge help and a new friend.
Venise is AMAZING. She's helped me see more clearly. She makes me feel comfortable and makes it so I know I can talk to her about everything. Even things that are buried down deep.
Venise was extremely helpful from the very first session! I was nervous not doing this in person and not being able to connect, however she’s been amazing and truly understands the type of help and guidance I need.
