“My experience with Elba has been nothing short of amazing.! She was able to guide me through depression onset by grief, encourage me to leave a dead end job and pursue something better; best of all she actually listened to me and give me feedback that changed my life! It’s hard to find someone so geniuine and caring. I’m happier now than I have been in years and it’s all thanks to Elba. She is without a doubt an incredible therapist who I highly recommend to anyone needing to be heard and healed.”
