Andrea is wonderful. Most of the time I just need to get it out of my system so she just lets me go but interjects to keep me on track or steer me into learning something more about myself. I really cannot say enough good things about her.
I feel lighter after talking to her and can feel myself let my guard down and be honest with her without judgement.
