I really feel like Dawn brought a sense of openness and a genuine caring attitude. She has great listening skills and she shines by opening new portholes to see out of. I feel encouraged by her gentle but insightful support to be wiling to look at who I am with more courage.

Dawn is a great therapist. I’ve made a lot of progress this year working with her that wouldn’t have been possible alone. She has gone above and beyond helping me through some tough situations and I’m really grateful for her.
