Annie is a great counselor! She will be sure to address your specific concerns and help you through them. Her energy and great responses make it difficult not to keep a smile on your face throughout the counseling sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone facing confidence issues, although she may have expertise in other areas as well.

Annie is very understanding! She listens to my thoughts and repeats them back to me in a way that shows that she truly understands what I am going through. She has helped me to simplify areas of my life that I tend to overcomplicate! I don't know what I would do without her help.

She's very soothing in her approach. She is compassionate and patient. She follows up with me if I haven't been in contact. This experience and her approach showed me my true purpose in life. To be in her position gives me much joy and happiness. I hope to be in a position to help someone navigate the waters I was once in.

Annie has been wonderful in the time I've had her. She checks in with me if I forget to do so and on the times where I was needing and seeking someone to talk to on a daily basis, she has been there. She's managed to help me process through the roller coaster my life has felt like and has been such a big help for me.
