She's great. I appreciate the way she seems more like a friend, with expertise, rather than a stoic body that analyzes me.

Emily has the demeanor that works for me, but this is because I hear knowledge, listening, understanding, and linking my concerns and challenges together. She is so much better than the first therapist I had. I view her to really care and not just fulfill the session. She seems to care and understands. That means a lot and is powerful
