Hmm this is a tough choice. I would have to say my grandfather, because there was much more I could have learned from him before he passed away and family is important to me.

2.) Surround yourself with people who have the knowledge you desire and you will always be learning and growing.

I benefited very much from the program. My therapist was just outstanding, and Saharah was also very professional, kind, and accommodating. The whole staff really cared about me and my progress. I felt like the exposure therapy was the key to my improvement along with learning ways to cope with my worry cycle and anxieties. In short, I thought it was a great and caring program, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others, or to return there myself if ever the need would arise.
