Written by N.A. on Nov 10, 2020 after counseling with Ana Cristina for 2 weeks

The sessions I have with my counselor help me with many anxiety episodes and just my day to day challenges. I’m so thankful I have my counselor to lean on when needed, and I feel like she is teaching me ways to be able to go through my days without feeling the way I was before talking to her. I’ve only talked to her twice and already feel a difference. I definitely will be utilizing teen counseling and their resources for forever now.
