She was very good! If I had major issues, I could see how she would be very helpful but it’s not really worth the price for day-to-day issues (not her fault). She’s very smart, listens extremely well, and is logical. All the things I needed in a counselor and more! I wish I felt that I needed counseling more haha!

Viktoriya helped me to change old ways of thinking that were not serving me well, and she is helping me heal old emotional wounds. She is great!
