Before I started seeing Nicole, I was seeing another therapist.
At that time I just needed to talk to someone who could understand what I was going through and she just didn’t really fit. I felt she wasn’t understanding and that there was no way I was going to take the train to Faro every Wednesday, sit and talk to someone who I felt wasn’t getting me or comprehending my problems, so I left.
I met Nicole a couple of weeks later. At first I was shy, like everyone usually is when meeting new people. It took me a while to open up to her and know that she was here not to judge or laugh and point out but instead to help and understand me. Meeting up with her was one of the best choices I’ve made. She helped me through so much. I got over social anxiety and meeting new people. I’m able to talk to my parents without worrying about what their reactions might be and I feel more comfortable and confident than I’ve ever felt my whole life.
Mentally and physically I appreciate the person I am today and it’s all thanks to Nicole. I wouldn’t have gotten here without her and for that I could never thank her enough.
Thank you for all you’ve done Nicole!
