Emily is firm yet understanding which is exactly what I needed. She provided tools for me to cope with the challenges I'm facing and is always fast to respond. She's been great!
Emily is kind, considerate, and asks pertinent questions to help me process what it is that needs to be processed.
Still very early in the relationship. but looks very promising.
