I am really happy working with Emily, I felt she "got" me right away which is a relief as it's so important to click with your therapist. I have got a long way to go on the journey of my recovery but I feel confident we will get there.

Emily is the sweetest human being I have come across. She always has kind words and she lets her patients be completely true to themselves during their session.
