I wanted this email to serve as a thank you. My sessions with you alone, honestly, changed my life. Two months ago I got married. That was something that prior to meeting with you, I never thought was possible for me. While I still have anxiety and some of the challenges I faced before, I feel so much better equipped to address them when these moments happen. I’m not sure how often you recognize the impact you have but I can say with 100% certainty that they made a tremendous impact on my life.
