Written on Mar 13, 2021 after therapy with Venise for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

I feel like I lucked out in getting matched with Venise. She’s extremely knowledgeable, understanding and personable. She’s offered a lot of great tips and exercises to help work through some personal growth. She’s also a great listener and is good in terms of following up on things I have expressed in past sessions.

She helped restore confidence in myself after experiencing grief post breakup. Overall she’s helped me “restore balance” and create a new chapter.

I would definitely recommend working with Venise.
