Mimi was so great. She was constantly checking in with me to see how I was doing and offering an ear for when I needed to talk through difficult situations. She helped me through one of the toughest years I've ever experienced due to my anxiety, and without her help I don't think I'd be where I am today.

I couldn't be more grateful for having Mimi around when I needed to find my way out of depressive thoughts. She is a wonderful person, with great knowledge of focusing on the important things in life. To have someone that gives you so much insight and care is truly remarkable, and I will cherish the learning process for a lifetime. A friendly voice in a chaotic world makes a huge difference, and I was given the tools and advice I needed, and found the peace within through her help. Thank you!
