Written by A.D. on Mar 12, 2019 after counseling with Yesenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Since I started talking with Yesenia my outlook on life has changed. I’m addressing issues I have within myself and working on the exercises she’s given me. She really listens to what I have to say and explains situations to me so I can really see the whole picture of what is going on. I’m grateful to have been paired with a counselor I connect with.
