Loved my experience here. Rachael was polite, understanding and very helpful with her recommendations. From daily habits to books; I feel as if the recommendations were suited for me and my needs. She is very easy to talk to and supportive of the life changes I was facing. The ease of scheduling and messaging my therapist was super convenient for my busy schedule. I will be recommending better help to others in the future.
