She is the absolute best in this field. Highly recommended. 5 stars.
Tahra is a good therapist, even though I just started for a few weeks it feels like I’m being heard and understood and that’s what I want.
Tahra was just what the doctor ordered. In our first session she made me feel extremely comfortable and she was such a great listener. Tahra made me feel like my therapy sessions were just me venting to a friend who gives great advice! I was in a difficult place when we met but after the tools she gave and a few sessions i felt empowered to make better decisions, and was able to manage my anxiety much better. Thank you for EVERYTHING!
