Dr J has been very helpful and supportive as I navigate through some life changes. I'm thankful for this opportunity.
I really appreciate Dr. Jessica for being with me through my healing journey. Though there was no fixed time for the response, I found the daily communication with her very helpful. Her questions are spot-on and have helped me a lot in exploring and reflecting on my true self and the core of my issues. She is empathetic and understanding, sometimes I feel like talking to myself in the mirror.
Jessica has been so keen to get to know and help me. I will see about saving up for money so I could hopefully complete more 1 to 1 chat.
