She has been very helpful in our process.

Written on Feb 09, 2023 after therapy with Clymie for 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues, family conflicts, coping with life changes, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and parenting issues

Clymie has helped me a lot in such a short amount of time. I can honestly say I feel very heard while talking to her. She remembers all the stories and experiences I have which makes me feel like she really puts in the effort to listen to me. Clymie asks questions about things that I don’t really think of but they help me realize a lot of things. I highly recommend her!
