I, myself, am a LPC. Long story short, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019. “You have cancer. “The scariest words I’d ever heard. My anxiety and my blood pressure went through the roof. That was three years ago. I thought I could handle all of the anxiety and depression that can often accompany cancer, on my own, because I have a degree. Turned out I needed more. I decided to admit I needed to speak to a therapist. I took the better help quiz and was paired with Marilyn. I am blessed to be working with her. She is very comforting and genuinely cares. I would recommend her to anyone.
