Testimonials

  • Skeptical about therapy? Not sure if it’s right for you or if it will actually work?

    I honestly felt the same way before meeting Tamika; whether you’re going through a tough period in life or just wanting to get more in tune with yourself and live your best life…Tamika delivers. She is passionate about her work and makes you feel comfortable and safe. She feels more like a friend than a therapist and you walk away from the session feeling relieved and lifted. Thank you Tamika for being you and putting so much compassion and care in what you do

  • As an Asian woman, it was vital for me to find a therapist that was also a woman of color; someone who could understand my struggles on a different level. I’m SO happy I found WOC and my wonderful therapist, Candace.

    The consultation process was smooth but thorough, thanks to their lovely intern, Hasasha. Their offices are comfortable, easy to get to, and with plenty of parking. Based on the consultation, they paired me with the therapist whom they believed would be the right fit.

    Candace has been a balm for my soul. She creates a calm, peaceful environment that makes it easy to let go and talk, even about difficult issues. I always feel safe when we have our sessions and leave with new insight or things to think about. I’m incredibly grateful for our talks and look forward to every session.

  • Tamika took me on as a client at the height of the pandemic.

    I knew that I needed more emotional balance with the unforeseen events of the pandemic, racial unrest movement, and a very eventful political campaign. I knew talking to a woman who looked liked me would help with carrying the load of 2020 and going forward. I had no clue how bad it would get but the only thing that pulled me through was knowing that I would be able to release so many emotions on a biweekly basis. I knew I needed someone that could see me when I couldn’t see myself and help guide my through what felt like a never ending emotional rollercoaster.

    I am so grateful for Tamika and all that she does to be in support of black women by helping to keep us mentally balanced and emotionally aware! She has a way of holding me accountable of my thoughts and feelings that I appreciate so much. So grateful for finding Dr. Tamika Lewis!

  • I’ve been seeing Alexis for over a year now. She is extremely insightful, caring, and patient.

    My past year hasn’t been the easiest and she’s helped me see through to the other side. As a person of color it’s important to talk with someone who understands the inner being and the dynamics of relationships we have with friends, partners, with family, and at work… Alexis is someone who just gets it. I’ve felt that I can truly share my experiences and outlook without judgement, and completely be myself. I’m so glad I started therapy last year, I can see the growth and changes within myself for the better, and I can see the growth and changes with the people who are around me. I highly recommend more people go to therapy. I’m so glad to have met Alexis, she’s helped me so much.

  • As a woman of color, it was extremely important to me to find someone who understood my day to day life experiences.

    I not only found that with WOC Therapy, but specifically with Tamika. I found an educated, kind, understanding, and incredibly helpful therapist who has been by my side during one of the most significant changes in my life.

    I am truly grateful for WOC Therapy and Tamika Lewis! Thank you!!!
