I appreciated being paired up with Chineze. I felt like my concerns were heard and acknowledged, while also providing gentle pressure and guidance on how to make progress on challenging areas of my life. She always responded promptly and had great availability for meeting for sessions. I would highly recommend her!
Chineze is patient thoughtful, and good at her craft.
Chineze is absolutely wonderful. I had put "not applicable" to a question about her understanding my primary concerns. The thing is, I don't yet understand my primary concerns. But Chineze has been able to, with what little she knows about me, help me understand what are not my primary concerns which is just as valuable to someone, like me, who can't seem to make up their damn minds.
I am very grateful that my daughter found someone she can trust and talk to at any time. She is very helpful and understanding, has a lot patience and compassion, yet informative.
Chineze is the best counselor I’ve ever had. She goes above and beyond for her patients which for me included spending extra time on our virtual meetings, remembering every little detail of my life, continuously reaching out to me when I was absent in my responses, even helping me draft up my resume when I was stressed out looking for a new job! I’ve been so blessed to have her help me through a difficult transition I was having in life and she’s the kind of counselor I would want to specifically request to be matched with in the future when I feel therapy is needed. Thank you for EVERYTHING Chineze!
It was a delight to work with Chineze. Her sensitivity and understanding of my circumstances helped me to be my best self. She was very professional but also willing to share her own thoughts when I was curious. I felt heard and understood. I highly recommend her!
With the experience that I am currently having, the Information I have been receiving is the exercises in life to become better from Chineze. The approach and angles for what is being said, and for me to receive, has been sights in life I have passed, and Chineze opens up the lanes of suggestions to a better path. Chineze is detailed specific through the times of your sessions, and well neutral grounded for a logical approach that will not favor you or down, but more so to give that time to think what is best for you. I am very happy, and I will continue to become better slowly day by day. Thank you Chineze.
Helps me talk about issues I rarely talked about before. Helping me get back on my feet and figuring out a healthy approach forward in life. Always enjoy speaking with her.
Ms. martinez has been gentle with me as we work through my traumas. She shows compassion yet still challenges me to acknowledge and manage my feelings through my process. She is relatable and Im grateful to have her as my therapist.
I would recommend Chineze to any of my friends! I feel like she listens and really tries to help me get through some very tough situations. I've been so thankful for all of her help!
Martinez is extremely caring, personable, and easy to talk to. She is a a great listener and has a really open mind, which I really appreciate. I’m very impressed with her and the compassion she’s shown me through such a difficult time in my life.
So far working with counselor Martinez has been great, she is very engaged in each session and follows up every few days with add. Resources to use in my everyday life. Very happy & pleased so far :)
