Ashley Pipino is an amazing counselor who is very attentive and concerned about the issues that her clients face. During my time, I have faced multiple difficulties that have caused my mental health to deteriorate which also saw a rise in dysfunction for my everyday life. However, Pipino was and is able to talk me through each issue. I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs help because the level of care and attention to detail is of the utmost quality

She’s the best she is very personal and goes out of her way to feel like you are her main focus and concern. She is extremely intelligent and that resonates into extremely insightful views and perspectives on issues I’ve been having that I never even knew i would need. She needs a raise.
