Gloria feels like I'm speaking to a friend. I feel comfortable with her and I don't feel the need to hold back information or dance around a subject without committing to it. She is very attentive and when I speak I feel like I'm being heard, not just assessed. She demonstrates a great knowledge of her body of work and she relates to my troubles with personal examples. She is also very responsive when it comes to responding to messages. I choose to supplement my therapy with journal entries, which is something that I hate doing, (writing about my personal feelings on paper) but she responds warmly to every journal entry I send even during off hours. Gloria has made my therapy experience feel worth it and I continue to see her even when I don't feel like I, "need it". Thank you Gloria!
