What Our Clients Say About Us

I’ve been seeing Lyresa for a few years. When we first met, she was so warm and comforting and i instantly felt at ease. It was like talking with a friend. She is always encouraging, positive and has helped me through several difficult issues. She is skilled, knowledgeable and has a genuine love for her clients! If a stuffy therapy session isn’t your thing and you are looking for something more inviting, I highly recommend Lyresa!

What Our Clients Say About Us

Prior to the start of my journey with Lyresa and Embrace counseling, I had many questions about myself. Questions like, “how to be a better me, how to control my emotions and how to set the tone for my everyday life.” During my time with Embrace Counseling, I have not only learned to set boundaries and expectations for myself, but also what it means to truly love myself. With her guidance, i have successfully been able to alter the perceptions others have of me, and ultimately, the perception I have of myself. I strongly recommend Lyresa and Embrace counseling to any and all of my best friends and family.
