My life has been really hectic, and I realized that I needed someone to talk to who wasn't related to me or my pals. I knew this would be beneficial to me, and while I'm not sure how long I'll need, I do know that I want to see Jeanne Tilseth for a while, if not longer. I require aid. I think she can provide me with the direction I need. I feel at ease with her. I feel a connection with her, and I pray that God would enable her to support me during this difficult time in my life. I feel as though God sent her to me.

Jeanne is wonderful and so responsive and thoughtful to my needs. She is always an encouragement and gives lots of thoughtful recommendations. She is also receptive to my feedback when I need something a little different

Jeanne has been immensely helpful for my journey towards better mental health. She is an attentive listener, very caring, but also not afraid to point out areas in your life that you could take action with. She's been great at helping with my anxiety and always gives encouraging advice and action steps. I would recommend Jeanne to anyone who needs a listening ear.
