Written by G.R. on May 27, 2022 after therapy with Ruth (Chu-Lien) for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and compassion fatigue

I appreciate Dr. Chao’s warmth and compassion. She is helping me realize that self care is not selfish but necessary and that I’m deserving of it. After years of abuse and trauma, I’m not used to hearing that and it’s very affirming.
