I have seen Gretchen for 5 months now. I cannot fully express how much I appreciate my sessions with her. She has sat with me through processing my whirlwind emotions, worked through grief, and continued to be a rock solid support person. She is beyond flexible and responsive to messages. I can say without a doubt I would be much worse off without Gretchen.

I am extremely grateful to have Gretchen as my therapist. Her exceptional skills and expertise truly shine through in her profession. I greatly appreciate how she illuminates things from a unique perspective and offers insightful suggestions on how to approach situations, rather than simply telling me what I should do.
