This is my first time ever doing therapy and I love it. I can honestly say it all has to do with my therapist Arkava Smith. Since we've started she's done everything to make me feel comfortable. She's patient, she checks in to see how my week went and most importantly to me is she hears me out completely and never tries to push me. While I'm still nervous about therapy itself I'll definitely be continuing with her because she makes it easier.
