Alan has been incredibly helpful with improving my stress management coping mechanisms, and overall anxiety. He has been very compassionate, understanding, and solution-oriented without being pushy, so it has been a great experience. I’ve seen a huge difference in how I manage stressful situations and I’m now able to think of positive things (instead of spiraling into my worries and negative self talk). Amazing and I absolutely recommend!
