Dr. Anita Rice is very wise. She has helped my mental health extremely by giving me great advice. I came to her extremely depressed and unemployed. Now 6 months later, I am employed and happy. My depression has gone away, and I will keep it away with the steps and tips that Dr. Rice gave me. I am very thankful for her.
