I feel so heard in my sessions. She validates my thoughts and feelings and puts into words things I struggle with. After my first session, I felt as though a huge weight had been lifted off of my chest because someone was there to listen to me, understand the feelings, put them into prospective and words, and was in my corner. I have gained great insight into how mental health plays into my day to day life and I use my techniques and strategies learned everyday.

Wanda has been an amazing asset to my life. I am very picky when it comes to therapists and I can honestly say that she has been the support I've needed through this rough time in my life. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs someone to talk to.
