Brenda is an amazing listener and understands my feelings. She asks questions that invoke critical thought and that lead me to understand more about myself and my feelings. She is not judgmental while still being able to step back and give a good understanding of the situation. Overall I have had an extremely positive experience. Truly grateful!
