Auslyn is an amazing counselor, she is a great listener and has helped me tremendously over the past few months. She is very attentive and actively involved & she is always willing to accommodate my needs. She has provided me with a lot of tools to measure my success, and keeps up with the specifics of my progress even though I know she has a lot of other clients on her plate. Can’t recommend her highly enough!
