Montrella is a constant support system for me in my mental health journey. She has helped me unlock the confidence I have lost in recent years. I feel like I’ve found myself again and that I can conquer anything I set my mind to.

Montrella has already made me feel comfortable about things I'm not normally willing to share and she doesn't feel like she is judging me

Montrella is very understanding and helpful! She listens to everything and she takes great pride in her work. I always feel relieved after each session knowing that she listens and she’s present! Very fortunate to have her by my side.

I haven't known a therapist that allowed continual contact outside of weekly sessions, and it's proven to be immensely helpful I'm improving my mental health. Montrella takes the time to work through all of my correspondence, as well as provide feedback on the process
