Benita is such a comforting force in my life. She listens with great patience and helps me to implement tangible changes in my life. Even when my week is going well I still prioritize my time with her. The analogy that comes to mind is that of a child who is confidently exploring the playground but still runs to their mothers leg for a moment before running off again. Benita provides the comfort and reassurance that I can keep exploring, growing, and changing. To continue the Analogy I would say that before starting my weekly sessions with Benita I wasn’t even able to enter the playground! I am truly so grateful for our sessions.
