I worked with Elika over a period of about 3 months, when I was really wrestling with insomnia and anxiety. I had never spoken with any therapist before, and did not know what to expect. I did not want to deal with the extra time and cost of seeing an in-person counselor, but I was also a bit leery that a digital meeting via phone or webcam would be effective. So, I tried it. It worked!I had a weekly phone call with Elika, with an occasional email or additional phone call peppered-in. She has an easy way about her, she is both funny and serious at the same time, and I found myself looking forward to our calls. Well - I ultimately had to 'fire' her, because she did her job so well -- I am sleeping well, and the anxiety is virtually a goner.If you are reading this, and struggling with something, I have a couple comments: 1.) Give Elika a try, there is really no downside; 2.) You WILL get better. I was in a pretty dark place, thinking that 'this must be the new normal for me now', but that is not the case. Those clouds will indeed disappear, and your sky will again be blue. Just take it day by day, and believe in yourself.
