Candace helped me a ton in my life. She was my therapist for about a year and the work that she’s done significantly helped me get my life back on track after it fell apart.

She’s very understanding and it feels like i’m talking to a friend instead of a therapist. So nice.

She is non-judgemental, always ready to listen and flexible when need arises. She is open about the changes she sees over time and has suggestions on ways to improve. She is able to relate and if you want can also bring God into it.

I have attended sessions with Candance Gilchrist for life change events (divorce proceeding) of my life. The progress I've seen over such a short period of time is amazing. She created a safe environment for me to feel supported and heard. She pinpoints traumas, triggers, and supports me through by giving me tools (head space app) and explanations ways you relieving stress of going through a divorce. I continue to look forward to my sessions with her each week! Thank you Candance Gilchrist
