“I’ve been seeing Ilissa for years and I truly don’t know where I would be without her. Her supportive, nonjudgmental way of practicing therapy is key to the personal growth I’ve experienced through tough times and major life transitions.”

“In some very dark times when I was feeling broken beyond repair, Ilissa is the one that taught me that the cracks are how the light gets in. Her guidance, support, and tenacity in helping me to facilitate my own healing have been instrumental in becoming the person I am today.”
