Anyone who works with Greta is incredibly lucky. Greta is solution oriented without being prescriptive. For me, Greta helps me get to the root of issues, allowing me to understand myself and create solutions that will work for me long term. I feel really empowered and cared for in her care. Everything feels very individual and I can always count on therapy to be a safe space where I'll laugh, cry, and learn about myself more.
