She is loving and gentle. She is empathetic and wise. She has taught me how to express my thoughts in a manner in which I can be proud of and get my point across. I feel and see so much improvement in my life since meeting her. I started Better Help with another counselor and I just never felt heard, more talked to. Dr. Newman remembers details and is just in all a really neat person.
