Thank you for not only finding someone to meet with me, but I believe she is the right person for me. If it was by chance, then I am lucky. If someone tried to match me up depending on my needs, I want to thank that person.

I was thoroughly impressed. I enjoyed my experience and I left with a positive feeling, taking away new techniques to cope with anxiety. It's a real issue in today's social climate and I'm happy to have had a positive first impression of what it's like to truly work on your mental health. I will definitely be back!
