What My Clients are Saying

Very patient and understanding. Feels like I am speaking with a loving family member. Non-judgmental. The best I could ask for!
Anese is absolutely amazing. I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for therapy. Anese started our session by wanting to know about me, and reviewing what I typed out about myself. She listened. I know this is her job, but something about the way she is, was what I needed in that exact moment. Anese is there for you while you are doing the work to better yourself. Anese taught me that life really can be simple if we just slow down, go back to the basics of what we were taught as a child, and just be. A simple change in my daily routine has changed my entire world for the better.
Within minutes of our first session I felt comfortable, honesty and complete caring. She hears. She understands. She appropriately guides. Looking forward to session 2.
I literally had to look up how to write a review because I'm not very good with tech stuff but was determined to leave Anese a review. Asking for help is NOT easy, and GETTING help isn't always accessible, and getting quick and TIMELY support is nearly impossible in general. So, I stopped trying. BUT working with Anese made me realize that it truly is about just finding the right therapist.
