I am so thankful for Dr. Coffin. In every session she made me feel like I was truly listened to. She provided strategies to combat the anxiety I was experiencing. She shared simple yet profound truths and emphasized the importance of "putting in the work". Often times we want an easy fix and through her I understood that I have to be proactive in my journey to healing. Her sessions were truly a gift and I am so thankful for healers like her that genuinely care about helping others.
