I appreciate Nehezi's patience and creativity in getting our first session even with two missed sessions because of my poor internet reception. She was wonderful when we finally talked on the phone .She seems to understand me and my needs. I am thankful and look forward to our times together in future sessions.

Nehezi offered chat therapy, and then after explaining my situation, told me she doesn’t do chat therapy, that she “has no clue how to help” me, and told me to find someone new. Wasted some time and energy here, but luckily not too much.
