Thank you for listening to me and providing guidance. I am totally out of my comfort zone talking to a therapist and actually admitting I have a mental issue (thank you for the diagnosis by my dr). Joana really takes the time to get to know me and figure out ways to help! Great job! Keep up the good work!
