Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"As well as being a good listener she is very proactive in helping me move forward in life after having a difficult past. She has taught me coping mechanisms and given me a stronger sense of self-esteem. Issues have been resolved with her help and ways of dealing with situations that aren't able to be changed. I highly recommend her."
