So far i feel pleased with my first ever experience with any counselor. Dee has been both professional and compassionate
Dee was a wonderful person to talk with. She was very kind, and a great listener. She was able to help me pinpoint some of the root causes of my stress and anxiety this past year and simplify the steps that I could take to help manage a healthier lifestyle. She was able to connect with me personally on a few topics which always makes it nice to feel like you are not talking to a stranger. She was able to be flexible and take the call on video or phone. I would recommend her.
Dee is great. She is understanding, level headed. Supportive. Offers advice when it’s required but also knows when to just listen. I really enjoy speaking with her
