I've just started to seek help, but after the first session I felt that Shanasi was someone who is concerned about me but more so about my well being, She's helping me walk through life with a better understanding of how to navigate it efficiently and how to think more clearly. The homework she's provided has been so beneficial to the point where I find myself practicing the exercises in the middle of my interactions with others. Thank You Shanasi!
