Sara was so incredibly supportive, and some days the most down to earth / best person to talk to. She gave me amazing advice, and truly was so motivating in all the ways I didn’t even realize I needed. If I could have continued to work with her (boo moving) I would have in a heartbeat.
Sara was nice and addressed my concerns.
Great. Timely, understanding, offers a variety of coping skills.
Thank you so much for all your support. It’s nice to have a place to work out all the thoughts going on in my head without judgment or feeling forced to process all at once.
Sara is really easy to talk to and understanding! As someone who has been pretty nervous in therapy in the past, I'm very glad that I was matched with her. I feel like she's already been helping me a lot. It's nice to know there's someone who cares about your perspective and truly gets it.
She has been very helpful to me and I am very grateful for that !
