It was my first time in therapy and I wasn’t sure how it would go. I just want to say thank you very much to Dr. Vang for being a therapist that I could relate too. She helped me work through things I haven’t told anyone before. I felt heard, validated, and encouraged in my sessions with her. After a few months I’m leaving therapy feeling more empowered and determined on my journey! Again thank you for making our sessions a positive experience in my life. I hope we can connect again in the future!
