Francesco is AMAZING! Week after week, I am so relieved to speak about my underlying issues in my life to him & he always is there to hear me out!

I didn't think I would look forward to sharing my feelings on an app. Francesco made it feel more like talking with a good friend. One that listens, cares, and offers sound advice. Having a similar background is also nice, makes one feel even more understood. I was setup with the perfect therapist for my situation. He is the bomb diggity. Super grateful for his kind heart, experience and wisdom.

Francesco is able to say exactly what is going on in my head even when I feel I am unable to explain it to him. He has helped me work through many hardships with ease and without any judgement. I feel comfortable talking to him and our conversations improve my weeks immensely. Definitely would recommend!
