Phyllis has been a great therapist, in the past I have been very reserved with therapists and often disagreed with them or didn't feel like they understood me at all. Phyllis did, she was a great listener when I needed to rant, and her quotes and feedback and homework helped me in so many ways. She is also just a very funny woman and her energy is unmatched.
