Emily is so awesome and understanding!! What am amazing person and she understands how to connect and get to the point that is causing the underlying issue. I have enjoyed our sessions and learned so much. She is very non-judgmental and supportive.
Emily is very nice and respectful toward me and has helped me throughout the months I talked to her with the situations I had.
