Tangela is phenomenal. She listens to my concerns and the concerns of my partner and helps us communicate in a healthy manner to move forward. She has been a great teacher by helping us learn our love languages and how we can best communicate with one another. I would highly recommend Tangela as a relationship counselor.

Tangela is kind, but direct, and she brings her therapy experience to the fore in a non-condescending way. Highly recommend 10/10.
