My practice focuses on the individual and understands when treating a patient "not all sizes fit all".

Written by J.E. on Feb 25, 2021 after counseling with Candace for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

From my very first session with Candace, she was able to home in on some of my bigger issues and name them. There didn't have to be a long getting to know me phase. I tend to be chatty, but she listens without interrupting my speech and then brings me back around to the topic or focuses on something particular I said that has relevance to our larger discussion. She also has given me a few tools/worksheets which I have already found helpful, even though our counseling relationship is so new. In short, I have confidence in Candace's commitment to my growth and already feel a partnership with her on this journey.

She is amazing. She listens, and listens, and listens. She offers her honest thoughts, looks objectively at the situation, and really seems to far. Thank you,

Candace is encouraging, supportive and real. Most importantly she makes me feel comfortable enough to be open and able to grow.
