I love her so much. Its always a relief to see her and talk with her. Shes so relatable and has the exact kind of energy that I'm looking for in a listener. I would recommend her to anyone/everyone BIPOC LGBTQ+
It took me some time to finally find a therapist where I felt comfortable enough to speak openly. I am so grateful that I found Zelimna! I remind her every session! She's a great listener and is non judgemental which isn't common with therapist unfortunately. Overall, therapy with Zelimna has helped me in so many ways I'm truly grateful.
She actively listens and helps me find areas that need improvement. She is very reliable and relatable. She is very easy to talk to and makes you feel heard and not judged.
She is fantastic and is great at helping me work through my emotions and problems
Zelimna has been absolutely amazing to work with! She really makes you feel comfortable and open. She gives the best advice and is an amazing listener! I looked forward to our sessions every week and made me enjoy therapy. I definitely recommend her!
zelimna is amazing at listening and giving her unbiased expertise in all issues that I face from relationships with family,friends and the opposite sex
I've always known I needed to start therapy- but Zelimna has made that decision one of the best things for me. I feel like the progress I needed in my life to work on myself was made possible by the safe space Zelimna offers in her sessions. I really look forward to my sessions.
I haven’t had many sessions with her; however, she’s very kind and professional. So far she’s great at responding to my messages and her voice is very calming.
Zelimna is the active listener I needed. She supports you as you guide yourself through your challenges.
Zelimna is great! Very kind and understanding and I'd be likely to recommend her to a friend
Zelimna is amazing! And compassionate!
Honestly I was nervous to start therapy and Zelimina helped me throughout the whole process she helps guide you so much!!!
Zelemna is kind, compassionate, and very appreciated
Zelimna has been the most caring, understanding, and overall wonderful counselor that I could have ever hoped for. I was cautious to give therapy another try after a less than stellar experience in the past and Zelimna has erased all of those fears and doubts. I look forward to our sessions every week and do not know how I would have navigated this chapter in my life without her.
Working with her has helped me tremendously :) She is amazing, super supportive and helpful. She understands my concerns and understands me and needs. She is absolutely wonderful. I thank her for all her work. She's great ! :)
From the moment I first spoke with Zelimna, I could tell I was going to enjoy her as my counselor. She is very personable and professional and asks relevant question. She allows me to discover my own answers and listens without any judgement. I just started with her, but she has helped me tremendously so far.
Zelimna is very compassionate and understanding! It’s only been 2 sessions, but I look forward to hearing her opinion and thoughts about my issues.
This was my first time ever doing therapy so I wasn’t sure what to expect but Zelimna is so patient and kind and has made me feel so comfortable.
I’m loving Better Help and Zelimna!
Love the platform. Zelimna is so nice and compassionate. I am so pleased with our sessions.
My sessions with Zelimna Tavaras have been very helpful. The combination of being strength based and motivational have inspired the strength within myself to be a large part of the solution to my anxiety, helping my focus and concentration. In this crazy time of the pandemic, her counseling opened my eyes to self healing and I am now able to better cope with what I can control and to let go of what I can’t control. I highly recommend her.
Excellent ear with great advice and perspectives!
She had been so supportive and makes me think about things in a different light. I feel so comfortable opening up to her during our sessions
