Written by G.I. on Jul 22, 2020 after counseling with Karla for 2 weeks

Karla is a very insightful counselor. She listens to her client and is able to connect in a very meaningful way. She is such a warm, and compassionate therapist and is so easy to relate which makes it so easy to talk to her about any issue. She is very empathic and is able to discuss and offer support even in the most complex issues we face . I honestly feel God sent her into my life to help shed life and facilitate restoration in some dark and hidden areas.
