Jerrel has helped me by creating a safe space to talk about feelings I didn't know I had. She's been able to expand on things with me and supported me with the ideas I've had.
He is very kind and feels like he really cares about what he does so thank you Jerrel.

After a few conversations with Jerrel, I can honestly say that he feels like a friend who understands the pain I'm going through as he listens without judgment and offers suggestions that would help me process my grief in a healthy manner. He is able to steer the conversation in a way that makes me reflect on my actions, responses, and emotions. Jerrel is someone I know I can trust.
