“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from therapy before I started. I thought the only way I would feel “better” was if she could tell me I was guaranteed to have a healthy happy baby which I knew was impossible. So I was surprised how therapy was able to help me address my anxiety with the skills that I have learned. I am very thankful and grateful.”
