Vicki has been wonderful to work with for the last year! Finally I found someone who is skilled with depression, anxiety and family conflicts. I see myself today in a much better place/light than I did before we met. Vicki asks excellent questions, offers well grounded insights, and keeps me focused on where I want to go.
