Annette has been very helpful in getting me out of a rut and helping me to realize how things are weighing on me that I didn’t realize were effecting me. She listens and allows me to talk about anything I’m feeling. Personally I am a christian and she has been amazing and knowledgeable beyond what I could have asked for in that aspect and I am confident she would be helpful to non-Christian/spiritual people as well.
