Mimi was incredibly supportive through such a difficult time, she responded to messages quickly and was able to do calls and video calls with her on a regular basis which meant alot. She is incredibly warm and caring and felt she was really there for us, and she is really easy to open up to and share things with, I never felt judged, I felt I could say whatever I felt and could speak freely. Thanks so much Mimi for all the support in such a difficult time.
Mimi's advice has helped me so much, so far! She is a great listener and is that person I can lean on.
Mimi is like having a best friend in your pocket who is always supportive, honest, and there for you.
She is there for me whenever I feel like I need someone’s opinion who isn’t directly in my life, and she continues to make me feel like I’m not alone in my thoughtsa. My favorite thing about Mimi is her approach. She makes opening up to her seem natural. :) I am really happy I met Mimi, and I recommend her strongly to anyone.
