"Meeting Kiyomi was a true turning point in my life,and I can wholeheartedly say that I have never been in a better place."
"I went through 3 therapists before working with Alexis, and while they validated my experience, they did not help whatsoever when it came to the intense fears of rocd\hocd I was experiencing. The sad truth is there are way more therapist that are NOT truly informed on OCD than are. I definitely recommend working with Alexis or if you would rather find someone locally to keep searching, but don't spend another minute (or dollar) with someone who won't even validate your experience."
"Through her patience for reaching into what my anxious heart truly needed.I’m finally realizing what it means to be whole again."
"The chattering quieted, palpitations and stomach quivering rested.I hadn't known such peace of mind and mental contentment in years and years."
