Deanna really listened to me initially and helped me prioritize what my biggest issues I wanted to work on and is very responsive- She sends me articles and worksheets that help me understand and gives me tools to make changes I need to make. I am already seeing a reduction in my stress and anxiety and feel more optimistic about next steps.

Deanna is a very good listener and is non-judgmental. She asks questions that will help get to the root of an issue while also providing ways we can cope with how we are feeling.
