“Talking to you has been incredibly helpful. If I had to pick one, I think you’ve been the single most important person for my healing/recovery time, more than my regular counselor. It feels like you always know what to say. It started out in the middle of a bunch of frustration, and googling for phone numbers because I felt like I just needed to talk to someone, anyone. Little did I know I would meet you. And now, when I finally started to get it, it feels like I’m beginning to look at a new world of possibilities.”
