On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Following are some comments left by a few of Ida?s previous clients within the past year.
?Ida is great at listening and is very friendly and it is therapeutic to work with her.?
?I?ve been counseling with Ida for a couple of weeks. So far, I?m feeling really good. I?m totally comfortable with her and I feel like she comes to the conversations with solutions that she wants me to collaborate with her on. I never feel like I?m being told what to do.?
Ida just has this extremely calming and reassuring energy to her. I immediately felt a connection with her in our first session. She doesn?t ever try to rush through any of our sessions, she takes the time to actually find the root of the problem and helps come up with a solution to them."
