Written on Oct 05, 2022 after therapy with Julie for 1 year on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

First is her lovely voice. Hers conjures up a smile. Next, It would be the things she has helped me to uncover; the roots of my anxiety and unease, never feeling quite adequate enough. I came originally for help with a work situation. What we have worked through is much broader than that! Should have done this years ago!

She’s great. She was warm and friendly right away. She always gets back to me quickly, sometimes more than once a day. I’m a long message writer and I love that she always addresses everything I talk about in our messages and never skips over details. I honestly have been doing so much better. Knowing that I can pick up the phone and have someone there is amazing. I’ve already sent my free week to a friend who signed up last week! I’ve been telling everyone about Julie and all our talks haha!
