She allowed me to open up and provided unbiased responses to my concerns. I felt validated in my emotions because I had been questioning if I was in the right or wrong in my situation. She helped me see that im just dealing the best I can with what I’ve got.

Elizabeth Frank's is an awesome therapist! She gives me encouragement and a safe space to speak. She makes you feel like there is someone supporting you and is on your side as you face whatever challenges are in your life. She encourages empowerment which in turn makes you feel stronger and more capable. When we fall down or lose our way, we all need a soldier fighting along with us. I strong recommend her expertise!
