"In just a few short sessions, a foundation was laid for the rest of my life. How did this happen? The one trait that stands out is a factor that is so overlooked in today's society, and that is the ability to actually listen. No, I mean really listen. Polly has the ability to truly listen, which allows her to formulate the right questions, which in turn led me to solutions."
