Our experience, although short was impactful. I love Dr. Handy's warm spirit, it's comforting and feels like warm apple pie on a cold winter day.

Dr. Handy is patient and allows me to express my concerns fully with an open mind. She asks questions to know my values and then she helps me focus on tomorrow so I don’t get bogged down with just the worried of today. She helps me out the world in perspective.

She is encouraging and allows me to talk, which is not always easy on my part. However, it helps to self-evaluate with the help of a professional.

I instantly felt comfortable with her! I felt like she heard me and was familiar with the experiences that I have been encountering. So far everything is going well! This is my first time using an online platform and the experience has been awesome!
