Ms. Griffin really listens and understands what I am talking about. She offered great, insightful questions that let me actually think and approach situations differently, so I can learn to deal with difficulties better. She’s kind and friendly, and responds to all messages. Highly recommend.

Kathleen was very responsive and nice to talk to. I came in with some anxiety and felt a lot better after talking with her. She was able to help centralize the root of my anxiety. She was also patient and empathetic. Overall I had a good experience talking to her.
