Written on Apr 24, 2016 after therapy with Dr. Glenda for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, sleeping, self esteem, career, and depression

Glenda is, in one word, AWESOME. I have only been working with her for a few weeks now, but in that short time, she has helped me so much. She is a wonderful, patient listener, and gives very constructive advice and inspiration for how to solve life's problems and roadblocks. When I don't always have a chance to respond right away, or forget, she makes sure to message me reminders, or ask about how I am doing. You can tell that Glenda sincerely cares about you, whatever your situation, and in helping you become a better version of yourself. She is worth every cent of the bi-weekly fee, and if you need someone to give you sound advice, inspire you, or just provide a listening ear, I highly recommend working with Glenda. Thank you Glenda, for all you do!
