Jeni Rae has been a real help for me, she has been supportive, caring and understanding of me on my journey to find my true self. From our very first session, she put me at ease and made me feel totally comfortable and seen enough to be able to talk about feelings and issues that I'd never told anyone else, or even really admitted to myself.

Jennifer is so personable, relatable, and made me feel so incredibly comfortable from the very first minute I logged on for the first time. I don’t know how I got so lucky to get matched with her, but I’m so thankful that I did because I couldn’t imagine a better therapy experience with anyone else.
