my month ended before i could send this message to her so hopefully she will be able to see this somehow or it reflect on how amazing she is. “ hey i just wanted to reach out and say thank you for everything you did for me and talked to me about. i know we only had one call session but it's actually helped me a lot to know those things and do the worksheets you sent. i think therapy was a good try for me but i think it's too hard for me to keep up with and i feel like i've gotten better and keeping myself busy since i started because of the therapy and lifestyle changes i've been making along the way with the support of my friends and family. you are an amazing therapist and a really great listener and communicator and made me feel like i had someone to talk to who cared if i was okay, thank you so much again and have an amazing summer and so on:)” mindy was informational and relieving and made me not feel alone with my anxiety and depression. she made sure i had the right tools/ things that could help me personally get better and i did
