Excellent all around! Ms. Williams listens extremely well, is very knowledgeable and both compassionate and empathetic. She has helped me tremendously in building and strengthening new relationship skills to effectively and graciously cope with my challenges with a narcissistic spouse. Additionally, I've gained new insight to better myself with her help. I highly recommend her.

Weyni's perspective in providing a birds eye view into my relationship was nothing short of mind blowing, time and time again. I am extremely thankful for her insight, her patience to listen, and ability to guide and break down the problem at hand. Her straight forward solution based approach to a problem, makes you think and reflect. Thank you Weyni for all the hours of listening

Weyni is amazing. In just 3 sessions, I feel so much better about my situation and feel like I'm on the path of healing completely. I am so thankful for her. She has given definition to many of the things I've been going through and confirmed thoughts I had about my situation. I appreciate that she follows up with me throughout the week in between our video sessions, and provides me with tools and resources to assist in my healing outside of our scheduled therapy sessions. Highly recommend!
