Renee is very responsive and insightful while letting me verbally process and get my thoughts out. Though I've only been with her two weeks, her guidance and expertise has provided a solid starting point to process some of the pressing problems in my life. As a person struggling with depression and anxiety, it is a relief to have her help.
