What I like about Nancy is that I don't have to explain to her the nature of my job, she's already been there, done that. Most people (including therapists) cannot fathom how hard my job is, the politics, the danger, etc... I don't have time to explain that, I need to dig into my issues, Nancy gets that. Thank you!
