Doris is a very caring individual and its almost like she feels your pain and anxiety. She is gentle and does not judge me. She listens and regularly takes the initiative to check in with me. May God bless her and her family.

Doris is incredibly kind and a superb listener. She was able to hone in on a couple root problems I’ve been experiencing and she has given me the tools I need to start regaining my happiness. I’m so grateful for her and look forward to our weekly video sessions and chats.
