A Testimonial From a Previous HTW Client

"I have always said everyone should see a therapist in their life because we all have stuff to work through, yet I never did but was the one others came to for advice and a different perspective. 2017 changed my life. The loss and pain I went through broke me like nothing else ever had. My time had come to reach out for help. After searching I came across Megan Gallagher. We interacted through email and text. With my crazy work schedule it ended up being two weeks before I could get into her office. She suggested we could start through email if I was comfortable with that to get the ball rolling. From the very first email it was very comfortable and I felt more relaxed in my everyday life. As the visits continued, I am more myself dealing with my day to day life, which at points I could not do before. Between our conversations and my brief yet amazing result from ART, I don’t focus on all of the stuff and the pain. I remember it but no longer live in it. Thank you."
