Cynthia Nicolas is a 5 Star Therapist! She really listens. Her insights and advice are on point. I’ve only had a few sessions with Cynthia, but she gets me! I highly recommend her!
She really makes you feel listened to and she really cares. I felt comfortable with her from the first day I met with her.
Only 2 sessions so far but it is helping my daughter to have someone to talk to.
