Vivian has always made me feel comfortable and able to talk freely. I came to her over three years ago and have made amazing progress along the way. I would see Vivian two times a week. My reason to start with her had to do with many things; mainly my marriage was falling apart right at the time I had given birth to my daughter. When she was less than three months old, I found out my husband was having a four year affair. I felt lost and realized I needed someone to talk to because I was too afraid to admit to anyone else how much hurt my husband had caused. I was protecting him. As I divulged more of myself, I, through Vivian, unraveled other underlying issues I was having: Anxiety in hurting others feelings, having a mother and now ex-mother-in-law who both had very strong personalities and I was afraid to confront and stand my ground, making my own decisions instead of pleasing everyone else, etc. That has now changed for the better and Vivian has helped me develop coping mechanisms in dealing with my emotions and any negativity in front of me. Vivian helped me grow so much along the way and enabled me to see how much stronger I actually was. After I came to the realization that my husband was not trying to make the marriage work at all, Vivian helped me through my struggles with my divorce into the years after my divorce. I feel like a new person! At present, I see Vivian twice a month to just stay focused with life’s hurdles and what matters for myself. I like the techniques she uses in helping me overcome a problem; I feel that she asks just the right questions that opens my eyes to a clearer path of what is going to help me emotionally and mentally. My mind and life are much more peaceful and focused now and I attribute that to Vivian.
