"I feel so thankful to [my psychologist] for all that she has taught me. She is an incredibly warm and caring person and it is so obvious that she is an expert in her field. She is so knowledgeable, patient and wise. With her help I was able to overcome my anxiety and face my fears. I now feel more able to manage the scary parts of life."
