She makes it a very comfortable environment. She doesn’t give you that judging feeling and she actually hears you out and sympathizes with you. She’s also very helpful in breaking down the problem and finding a solution that fits for you. She always asks for consent which is nice for someone who struggles with being controlled. 100% recommend
