What's Your CORA Story?
I have only been to three of my initial 15 approved visits. I am learning a lot of self-care practices by way of my therapy with Don Early. He is a very intuitive and supportive therapist. He truly listens and observes while providing meaningful input. His level of expertise and the way he cares about his patients is obvious.
