Yazmin was very easy to talk to, very consistent with her feedback and suggestions and I was able to open up quickly. I really enjoyed talking to someone with a diversified background to connect even deeper. She is motherly and caring and kind person.

She's awesome. She listens and responds depending on what was said. :)

Yazmin is so patient, caring and I think of her as my number one cheerleader. She is always filling me with words of encouragement and motivation. She is an exceptional listener and I feel as though she's really gotten to know me and pinpoint the areas in which I struggle with. She's always giving me resources to further support me and challenge the negative way that I tend to think. Really enjoyed our sessions together! I would strongly recommend her!
