She is so far an excellent match for me. she is caring and stops to explain things. She doesn't talk down to me but she doesn't pull punches either. Already have homework and it is helping so much

She dedicates time to listen and understand the circumstances for which we are all here, we the patients need to understand our limitations to address the issues we faced, with just a few sessions I am understanding better. Thank you!
