I have been speaking to Dr Young for 6 months now, and she’s really helped me understand myself better. She’s a very good listener, and is so easy to speak to and confide in. This is my first time doing therapy and she’s made it a pleasurable experience for me, she’s truly a blessing.

Barnetta is a mature, calm and sensitive person who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed during sessions. She is a good listener who gives you a platform to express yourself without fear of being judged and then she prepares the right responses for your situation and needs. She is very proffessional and realistic.

This was only my second session with Barnetta however I can say with confidence that she is a wonderful therapist and has been one of the few people that have made me feel validated and listened to. I was nervous when I started with Barnetta and within 5 minutes of my first session I was at ease. That is a rare talent in this world. I highly recommend Barnetta as a therapist.

I am currently still in counseling sessions with Ms Young but wanted to let those who are deciding who to choose for a counselor…look no further! She is an amazing listener, advisor, very inspiring, and wonderful in her wisdom. I want to be selfish so she can only avail herself to me, but know that’s unlikely. Choose Barnetta Young, you won’t be disappointed!
