I recommend this app to everyone. Mainly due to my therapist being so wonderful. And the ease of use. She responds quickly and has listened and addressed everything with me. She has even spent extra time with me when available to work out issues.

Honestly, one of the best therapist I’ve ever had not only on here, but in real life as well. She listens and understands problems and offers great feedback or solutions to the things I have to say. Helps me think outside of what I would normally think.
