I may at times speak with professional colleagues about our work without asking permission, but all identities will be disguised.

In the short time Jonathan Ybarra has been my therapist, he has helped me think more positively and feel like I am not a lost cause. He listens and I never feel that there is any judgement in his response. He is an excellent therapist!!
