Really enjoying the experience so far.
Monica has been a tremendous help to me. They way she listen to me and is able to empathize with various issues has truly been a source of relief for me. She has been so attentive and resourceful, literally couldn’t ask for a better therapist and counselor.
Ms. Garcia has been great.
Monica has been Fabulous. Respectful, accommodating and personable. My wife and I felt pretty comfortable with her, felt confident she understood some of our challenges and provided suggestions (homework assignments) that truly helped.
We've only been working with Monica for a short time but it is already evident that she is excellent at her expertise. She is clearly extensively educated and not going through the motions. I like that she gives homework and recommends a variety of resources. The work in counseling is still hard and emotional but I really do feel that Monica will make a difference in my / our lives. I've already recommended the service to others thanks to our experience with Monica.
