I have recently started working with Darci. In this short space of time, I have been impressed with her ability to connect with me and understand my concerns.
I feel extremely lucky to have been paired up with Darci from the start of my counseling path. I can’t say enough about how thorough and helpful she has been with everything I have brought to her attention. I feel that since I have been having sessions with, doing worksheets for, and messaging her, that I have been able to make positive decisions and moves with my life that have been extremely beneficial. I am so very thankful for her kindness and all of her help.
She been great understands me really well and I feel when she pin points what she thinks the root causes of a lot of my issues start from are always the same that I was thinking is causing my anxiety
Great counselor. Highly recommended!
Darci took the time to really listen and try to understand all the things I was going through. She has helped me a lot.
Darci will listen at first and ask all the right questions. She is very proactive and inquisitive. She's supportive and like-able.
She really helped me to understand and process my feelings and emotions. Really takes the time to listen, very supportive and thoughtful. She provided a lot worksheets and exercises that helped me overcome everything I was going through.
She has really helped me understand how I am feeling and makes me finally feel like I’m being heard. So grateful for her!
