So thankful for Davina, her perspective and her assistance through this season in my life. She always points me to Truth, and shows me how to apply Truth to my daily life and suggests activities for me to practice between sessions.
She is priceless!

She does a good job communicating and outlining steps to take to try and improve. Is taking time to get to know me over the video sessions and so far has been a solid good experience
