Written by D.A. on Oct 04, 2019 after counseling with Ryann for 1 year

Ryann supported me in one of the most difficult and stressful transitions in my career. She listened, supported, and help me find my voice. I still have growth in areas, but I was ultimately satisfied with how I overcame that journey and experience with Ryann’s support.

This is my third week with Ryann, but I’m making great progress. I love that I can message her throughout the week and she responds with feedback.
