Deepa has helped me so much in such a short time. This was my first experience with counseling so I didn’t really know what to expect. She has such a calm approach, which really makes me feel comfortable. I was able to open up without feeling any judgement. I think the best part was the thinking approach she recommended. It’s helped me tremendously with my outlook of life in general. Thank you.
