“I wanted to write you and tell you thank you for helping me conquer some of my fears. I had been suffering with my anxiety since I was about 13 years old. I didn’t realize or know what anxiety was until I turned 18 yrs old. I had been suffering alone for 5 years. When my mom finally understood what was wrong with me, she took me to a psychologist that specialized in anxiety. But, for some reason the help & outcome were minimal. I didn’t feel like I had made any progress. Until I sat down with you and actually talked about my fears, I felt so alone in the world. You taught me to process these feelings in a controllable way. You also gave me the tools to use to get over my fears, when confronted with an attack. People like you are few and far between. Because of you, I am able to travel the U.S., get on an airplane, and attend my college classes without any anxiety. It has taken a couple of years, but I am grateful that I can finally feel a sense of success! I don’t even want to think about where I would be if it wasn’t for you. I want to thank you with all of my heart.”
