Helen is an outstanding therapist who was matched with me in a moment in my life where I needed therapy most.
Helen I'm sorry our time together was cut short, right before our session I tried messaging you but the compsyc services expired for me and I cannot afford to pay the weekly fee that was stated 210$. I can't afford that right now, but I wanted to extend my gratitude and my heart to Helen. She literally taught me the tools to save my own life. I will keep these notes forever, and I'll never forget these valuable lessons. Thank you thank you thank you!

Helen is incredible. I met with her during a time when I was going thru a lot of ups and downs and she listened, encouraged, and helped me focus on the important things and path forward. I am in a much better place now than when we started our sessions. Thank you Helen.
