"I did extensive talk therapy as a young woman, which was extremely useful. I recommend it. But in my current situation, I wanted to find ways to deal with my anxiety, which had become disabling. I wanted concrete steps for now, and not so much a deep dive into my past. This program, and CBT, turned out to be the right way for me to go at this point in my life. I feel like I have the information and the steps, and although it will be a process to re-frame my thoughts and emotions, I believe it can be done. My therapist had insightful comments and a sense of humor, which I appreciated. I'm glad I did this program!"

"I'm glad to be addressing my anxieties, and glad to be using the solution-based CBT method. I did years of (very helpful) talk therapy when I was a young adult, but at this point I know what my issues are and appreciate dealing with them specifically. My therapist is responsive and has a sense of humor, which I appreciate."

Thank you so much, you have been most helpful to me during a difficult time in my life."

"The program was great! My therapist listened well to all of my problems and offered great solutions to change my way of thinking and get me going on the right path. Of course it takes a lot of personal effort too but my confidence has gone up and anxiety has gone down in about a month. I would recommend this to a friend."

"My therapist has been amazing she has made me really put my mind to looking at things in a positive way and looking at things that I have hit deep within and not wanted to face, She is responsive all the time and I appreciate that she gets back with me super quick as far as messages go and she gets back with me with results of how I've answered my worksheets in with her Responses of my work sheet. I think that this is amazing and I hope to be able to afford and continue to go forward."
