I needed support primarily with anxiety management & other health/life areas. Dr. Legner has been a compassionate, caring & insightful guide in helping me learn about my experiences & finding different pathways through them for nearly a year. I've gained a lot of new information from Dr. Legner that I didn't know I needed about how the human mind, behaviour, and other aspects of being human works. We worked primarily with ACT & mindfulness including developing thought-awareness. Whenever I asked questions about medical or other health-related things I did not know about, she would explain and offered resources I could use as needed. I deeply appreciate her willingness to explain information so I could understand & her compassion in witnessing. Dr. Legner holds a kind, compassionate listening space & made me feel willing to step into new points of awareness without compromising safety & care at any point. I've received on many occasions, highly actionable, clear & evidence-based recommendations that I'm still putting into use. I highly recommend Dr. Legner.

My experience with Dr. Legner has been positive so far. She is highly skilled and has offered a variety of interventions for me to try to help with my depression and anxiety. She is calm and present and listens to me. I also like that she challenges me to consider my thinking.

Dr. Legner is so good. From the second we started our sessions I felt extremely comfortable with her. The skills she provided me have also helped tremendously. I wish I had found her sooner.

It has almost been a year since I've had my therapist. She listens to every concern and gives many ways for me to cope with my high anxiety and depression. I have still ways to go but I wouldn't want anyone else to help me. I'm ever so grateful.

Dr. Legner is so kind and knowledgeable. She has an aura that is immediately calming and made me feel safe to share what I was going through. She provided me with great worksheets to better help my understanding of certain situations and resolutions and for my own self-improvement as well. I am very grateful to have met Dr. Legner.
