"I have perspective on what happened when I was eight years old and I feel so much better that it was not my fault and I did fight. Knowing this,


I can deal with what is in my life right now.


The thought of going to therapy was scary. Jenny was not afraid to hear the details of my worst day. She brought me energy, joy, and humor. I never thought I could laugh while doing trauma work. Jenny was an awesome help to me.


I have a lot of love and appreciation for our time together."
