Thank you so much for all you have provided me over these past months. I could not have asked for a better experience with therapy. I came to you when I was in a bad place and skeptical of therapy. Your kindness and warmth provided such a comfortable environment and allowed me to share with you what I was unable to share with anybody. Words cannot express my gratitude. I never thought I would be where I am today, so much happier and excited about life and I truly have you to thank. You are an amazing therapist and I want you to know how much you have changed my life for the better. Thank you again.
I wanted to thank you for being such a great Doctor. This is the first time in years that I felt like myself. I was very lost. You really helped me through. I know I still have things to work on but I’m on track.
I feel so lucky to have you as my therapist and so grateful to have been helped through so many known and unknown issues in such a short time. I love having you in my life. Life is definitely improving and I think we work well together. Thanks for everything!
