After long time having a hard time living abroad and feeling isolated, i could suddenly feel better after having first video conference with her. She's a good listener and its really enjoyable talking to her.

My therapy sessions with Dani have been really insightful. We only had 8 sessions though it helped me to transform years of anxiety and overthinking. Glad I was brave enough to finally go to therpay, and wish I've done it sooner!

I am looking forward to our sessions. It has been really helpful sharing my story with her. She is a really good listener and gives me a lot of useful tips. Even though she might not have experienced what I have, she does a really good job in working with me.
