Written on Oct 05, 2023 after therapy with Brannon for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Dr. Pruet is amazing. Without his support the last few years would have really taken a toll on my whole life. He managed to help me find ways to pick up the pieces day by day, take another breath and focus on the progress and positivity to make it through rather than falling apart. Some days were definitely hard and he heard me, made time to listen and provide new coping mechanisms to process through even the hardest of days.

I cannot thank Dr. Pruet enough for his support and compassion to help me get through while focusing on my children and myself to get stronger day by day.
