Well since I take pride in alerting my therapist of my choices in advance and she gives me feedback on my choices. I recommended people to get help in whatever their struggling with and since Candace has been in my life I feel like I can talk to her about anything. Any emotions I'm having. Things that spike my anxiety. Anger I have pent up. I tell her what triggered my emotions and how I handle it and she doesnt judge just reinforce positive encouragement. I just got back with her today about my work environment it was turning for the worst and now it has gotten better. So if this helps anyone out there who's having problems this is the place to come. They work around your schedule. Their here for you. I just randomly talk to my therapist.

Candace and I have only been working together for a short time, but the time that we have been working together has been very helpful. She assists me in questioning myself in ways I hadn't before to recognize and change my maladaptive behaviors. She listens and is attentive and provides honest non-judgmental supportive feedback. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with this far, after a session or two with Candace I am able to reflect and continue on even facing some extremely adverse situations head on. Thank you for all of your help so far, support and guidance, I continue to look forward to working with you in this journey.

Candace is a wonderful counselor. I am very happy to have matched with Candace. She provides very timely feedback. Her thoughts are concise and realistic, which is exactly what I need to hear. She provides tools that I can apply daily to help me develop. Since talking to Candace, I have seen improvements in myself and that in itself is exactly what I was hoping to get out of our sessions.

I knew I needed to talk to someone, but it is really hard for me to find time to do this. I was skeptical at first about using online counseling but Candace quickly dissolved that feeling. Candace listens. Her replies are well thought out and always within a short period of time from my last message. She has given me tools to use and take with me throughout the day which are helping me tremendously.
Candace achieves more personal connect through emails than some others do face to face. I am so thankful to have been paired with her!

Candace Ross is thoughtful and immediately responsive. She is compassionate but solution oriented. I feel great knowing I can potentially have access to someone of her caliber through better help.

Work with me!
