Gail is lovely. I've only been able to have Gail as a counselor for a month, but I love her aura and attitude . She listens and gives me constructive advice and tools to help me actively work on my anxiety and trauma. She gives me the extra push I needed and has helped me reach a new positive perspective to life. I know I would have been able to work on my issues even more if I was able to continue working with Gail, but I am more than satisfied with my time and progress. Thanks Gail!

Loving her fresh perspective on what Im going through. It’s only been a short time but I’ve already been feeling so much better about how I go about life with the tools she’s given me. I’m very happy. I look forward to our communication. I didn’t think I would, I though therapy was going to be just a pain I had to get through but it’s really not! It’s been pleasant, simple and soothing to my soul.
