Absolutely enjoy meeting with Piper. Her approach is like you're meeting with a friend, very easy to talk to and very down to earth. I thoroughly enjoy the connection we've made in these past few sessions. Piper has given me solid advice that has helped me slowly get back on track towards my goals. Her relatability is very comforting. For me having a therapist that can relate is something that helps ease my anxious mind. Your time with Piper will be wonderful and sometimes feel too quick because of how fluid the conversation goes! 10/10 would recommend Piper as your therapist. Thank you Piper ❤️

She seems very knowledgeable and very sympathetic to my needs. I do however wish I was allowed more time to complete my sentences but I think it is the zoom conference delay or something glitchy or wifi other than that she's awesome!
