Reviews

Written by G.E. on Mar 13, 2020 after counseling with Maria Elena for 2 weeks

Dr. Cadet is great! She has a wonderful, calm, and patient demeanor. She listens to everything I say during our sessions and offers thoughtful responses. She also makes me think deeply and in directions that I never would have considered with insightful questions. Finally, she's very firm in setting goals that will help better my life, which has helped with making sure that I actually push forward and pursue them.
