I completely trust Davia. She intuitively understands my struggles and balances listening with asking questions that get to the real issues. She makes me think & consider things that aren't obvious to me. I can get lost in my own head. Davia helps me look at things in a way I hadn't considered. I'm dealing with grief, after unexpectedly losing my husband of 29 years. I have a whole new life I never imagined & am not equipped to handle. It's hard asking for help, but Davia has been a positive force. I'm very grateful for her concern & expertise. I would highly recommend doing the hardest thing -- reaching out.
