She was my first match & I'm thankful. She helps me talk through the things that make my voice shake. She doesn't slap labels on what I'm going through. She pushes the conversation towards where it should go. She's helping me regrasp my strength & remember who I am. She is a graceful woman & I am glad to have met her.

Work with me!
