Candace is a wonderful therapist. She keeps me focused on my issues rather than just letting me talk without getting anywhere. I feel I’ve made more progress with her than with all the other therapists I’ve seen. I’ve done inner child work and also worked on my self care and self esteem. She is very knowledgeable and has a way of making you understand concepts with anecdotes and examples. She is very professional and I highly recommend her.
