Susan was very helpful, asked insightful questions and offered suggestions and answers to my many questions. She also sent me several helpful resources to review and implement in my life. I felt much better after talking to her. I plan on setting up some follow-up appointments with her soon. She is definitely worth talking to about whatever is on your mind!
