Reviews

Written by A.S. on Jan 07, 2021 after counseling with Monica for 2 weeks

My counselor is responsive and attentive. We haven’t had an actual session as of yet, but she has had me feel that I am heard. I anticipate the session being intentional and to be a pivotal point to help me where I am currently in life.
