It’s nice to have someone to talk to who genuinely cares about the well-being of my family.
You were only working with my son for a short time but I can see an improvement in his anxiety. He now has more good days than bad ones.
I started therapy because my mom thought it would be a good idea but talking to you every week has helped me feel better. I think therapy is something I’ll keep doing.
I feel like I have more control over my thoughts and I don’t let things upset me as much.
