The very thought of undergoing treatment for depression makes you uncomfortable and afraid.however Dr.Hvovi not only made me feel at home the moment I walked in but she was so careful and gentle in the entire process leading to the start of sessions that I developed confidence in my ability to overcome it. The tests I underwent *** **** **** ******* *** ******** results pertaining to what my issues were, then the sessions have with time not only made me calm and much jovial on a daily basis but has made me look at this issue with much open mind.i feel very free to share every intricate details with her and the sessions are absolutely worth it and makes you so positive and forward looking to the treatment. It is helping me grow a better life. She is very informed,educative,supportive and motivational all through, with that personal touch of affection which a person undergoing turmoil would need. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs to discuss and talk to someone about a disturbed state/mindframe or any issues related to clinical psychology!
Hvovi is a great professional who makes every possible effort to understand the needs of her clients and builds solutions jointly which are practical and easy to understand aimed to help achieve great results. She is able to connect with her client at a level where both are able to work towards a set objective.
Good. She gave me tips about sex education and we discussed about my issues at office and how I am dealing with them. Also we discussed about my plans for marriage and how I was worried after a similar discussion with my mother. She agreed that courtship would be right for me before entering into engagement. Also she warned me to be careful and not get exploited by people besides she also wanted my sister to come for session later in order for her to get more awareness about asperger syndrome
