I was skeptical at first about doing this, but I looked through the pictures and picked her! She is close to my age so she is able to understand the things I am going to in a manner others might not be able to! I think that is a major factor in my being able to trust her and listen and try to use the things she tells me. I am grateful for the opportunity to use her expertise to help me. She has been encouraging and offered opinions that is both helpful and useful! I am enjoying our interactions.
