I had a pleasant first meeting with my therapist. In a moment of distress and so many doubts about my future, she managed to make me see where the solutions are and was very supportive.

Amazing human. Our conversation was deep and she gave me a perspective of my situation that really helped me understand how to keep moving forward. If anyone needs a kind hearted human who knows how to listen, please talk to Zaida.

Thank you!

I’ve never been this much comfortable taking with a therapist about my concerns but miss Zaida really made me feel comfortable and understood.
