It’s still early in working with Ann but so far, she’s exactly what I need. I’m sure she adapts her techniques and style to the person she is speaking to but I need someone to hold the mirror and level with me and she is able to do that. She also shares a similar background that really resonates with my story so I know that there is that life experience backing the therapeutic technique and I feel that I can really trust her insight and suggestions.
