She is thoughtful, down to earth, honest, she doesn't impose her ideals on you. Her sessions have an awesome balance of speaking and listening. She's sooo flexible. I feel so safe with her and wouldn't trade my therapy time with her for nothing.

I almost quit therapy. Then I started meeting with Wanda who really listens, gives me space to say what I need to say and challenges my thought process for the better. I’ve already seen a big difference in the short amount time I’ve been talking with her. I would highly recommend giving her a chance!

Wanda - is incredible. I feel an immediate peace when talking to her because she repeats back what she is hearing me say and in doing so gives me the validation of being heard. It’s a chaotic time in my life - and I am so very thankful to have been paired with her.
