I’ve been working with Liz for a few months now and she’s amazing. I’ve done therapy previously and never continued after a few sessions because I felt like I could never find a therapist I connected with. Liz truly makes me feel heard and understood. It’s really nice to have someone who listens and validates my feelings. I look forward to our sessions every week!
