It's always productive, this last one, and the ones before. Ever since I have been meeting w/ Shira Lee, it's beenabout 3 yrs, I have been able to see things differently. She gives me advice and tools that make my coping arsenal much better. I also love the fact that she listens very attentively.

I love my visits with Shira Lee. I find that I learn a lot about myself and my emotions that I would not have if we did not speak. She is extremely professional and accommodating which I respect a lot. As a young adult, I feel like Shira Lee is able to relate to me and understand my generation.
