Thomas is a very talented therapist, I honestly feel like he has been an asset for me, and I'm better now than I was prior to my sessions with him. Thank you for creating this awesome app for people like myself who typically work all day and can't find a way to cope with the day to day experience or find any time for an actual sit down with a therapist.
