Dr. Vevaina is an amazing counselor. She listens to everything I have to say and helps me discover how I can overcome my confidence issues. She makes me feel comfortable to talk about everything with her by laughing with me and making me feel that my voice is heard. She makes sure that I'm honest with myself and her. I can't recommend her enough as a counselor.

Dr. Vevaina is the reason that I am still here today to write this. She will never know that, but I talked with her about how I felt and she made me feel accepted and she made me see that people do care. I don’t have a huge support group so it’s nice to know I have one here.

Dr. Vera is exactly what I am looking for in a counselor: she listens well and asks appropriate and timely questions to try to understand me better while helping me to understand myself at the same time. She is light-hearted and has a great sense of humor when appropriate and is gentle and patient. I'm glad that we were matched.

I LOVE Dr. Vevaina. I have never felt more comfortable with a counselor. She laughs with me. She is honest with me. She makes me feel understood, as well as calls me out (in the nicest way possible). She is very quick at responding to messages and our video sessions are very productive. I look forward to my sessions with her.

Dr. Vevaina has helped me realize several things and given me the kind of perspective that I believe will help me in many ways. She is fair, logical, and an amazing listener. I enjoy talking to her and listening to her expertise on my situation. She also responds to my journal entries and questions in a timely and helpful manner. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
