Reviews

Written by L.E. on Dec 28, 2018 after counseling with April for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

I’ve only interacted a few times, but, it has been amazing. I really appreciate her time and compassion.
