I have a very busy schedule and struggle with managing my emotions. Lesa has helped me understand my deeper emotions and where they come from. She has already made an impact on how I feel in everyday life situations. I have always kept my emotions bottled up. Lesa has helped me improve on my self and my mental care. I can’t wait to start feeling happier and more motivated.
