PAST CLIENT EXPERIENCES

Thanks best counselor ever! You are literally the measuring stick I measure all other counselors by lol... And they all get a chuckle when I tell them about how you would plant seeds in my mind without me being aware, then water them, give them sunshine, make sure the temperature is right, and then suddenly 6 weeks later I'm talking about these things as if they were my idea haha. Thank you for your help. You make such a big difference in people's lives, I hope you feel our gratitude every day!

I just had to send you another message to say thank you for helping me when it seemed like it was pitch black in my life and I didn't have one friend to turn to. I'm sure you and your family are very happy wherever you are stationed now. You are so missed and I thank you again for everything you've done in my life. I know your life is off the chain busy but I am so grateful for your help.

Sylvia M.

I was hoping to find you well and still doing relationship counseling. My husband and I saw you about seven years ago regarding difficulty in our relationship due to infertility. Well, three children later, we are having some communication difficulties again. You made such an impact all those years ago, we would love to have you assist us with finding some solutions on how to effectively communicate again. Thank you so much!
