I can't say enough amazing things about Gilza. I went through a very challenging experience in my life a year ago and because of her I'm in such a good place right now. Her compassion, honesty, and humor were exactly what I needed to get me through those tough moments. I wouldn't be where I am today without her!

Gilza has been a lifesaver. I don’t know how I would have navigated through a year full of crises without her. She offers a no nonsense perspective into whatever one is dealing with, but is also compassionate and caring. I highly recommend her!
