I am thankful to have been connected with Dr.Harp. In my first three sessions I opened up to Dr. Harp. I am convinced now that he had a strong sense of what he could teach me that would enable me to help myself.
I am going to continue my sessions with Dr. Harp. He has explained changes I need to make to achieve my goal of better health, not just mentally but physically as well!
For me it is going to take some time and with Dr.Harp’s help, my future looks bright.
