Written by R.E. on Jul 22, 2020 after counseling with Melissa for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Melissa Sweeney helps me exactly how I need. She keeps me focused on what I really want out of life, acknowledging the negatives only to accept them and move on from them the best that I can in order to have a more fulfilling positive life experience.
