Written by T.E. on Sep 04, 2020 after counseling with Maria Elena for 3 months

I am in counseling with my adult daughter who can be a handful. Dr. Cadet is not phased by her antics of avoidance which puts her at ease. She also is guiding me on how to handle my own difficult circumstances of declining health. She has been able to give us tools to better communicate and have a compassionate tone each other. Recently, she is gently adding God into Conversation which my daughter has resisted but is becoming more open. It has been a great tool for our relationship and I would recommend her to anyone. This week I recommended her to a close friend.

Dr. Cadet is amazing! She pushes me to achieve my goals and conquer my insecurities in a way that’s both affirming and proactive. I feel comfortable talking to her about my troubles and to have another woman of God in my corner is an immense help.
