I was going through a tough time in my life that I never experienced before and Fennisha helped me achieve mental clarity, provided tools and very helpful advice to keep pushing foreword. It’s okay to have bad days, you just have to know how to approach and handle it your way. She deserves all the thanks to help me along this journey. Amazing at her job. I could go forever but I think you get the point.

I’ve been working with Fennisha for the past two years and she’s helped me TREMENDOUSLY. I’m on a maintenance program now and I genuinely miss talking to her weekly, though I know it’s the process and this means I’m doing well. She’s open and welcoming, firm with me when I need it but never judging. Highly recommend her!

Fennisha is amazing. I feel like she really listens and asks me questions to be productive in resolving stress issues or figuring things out that I may not even realize are the root causes to things I’m stressing about. She’s kind and very responsive. I highly recommend her.
