I worked with Brenda for about seven weeks. Brenda helped me with a variety of tools from a faith based perspective. She encouraged me, prodded when necessary, and always had a warm smile. Her practical advice and empowerment helped me to overcome things from my past that were hindering me. I highly recommend!

I look forward to my sessions with Brenda, I leave these sessions feeling more in control of my situation. I feel validated that the path I’ve chosen is the right one for me. I’m learning a lot about myself, I’m putting boundaries in place, I have developed both an inner strength and a sense of peace. I know there’s still plenty of room to grow and more tools to acquire but I see the potential for all my future relationships to be healthier and more fulfilling ❤️

She has been great at listening to everything & working through issues I’ve presented to her in the time of been working with her.
