I have provided therapy to clients with ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, PTSD, Communication issues, Family relationship issues also Separation and loss. I realized seeking treatment is very difficult but when you have an issue that you have tried to solve by yourself without success, it may be time to seek help.

Lurlene has helped me build my confidence. She listens and allows for me to express myself fully and understand what is truly holding me back. My anxiety has decreased by learning what is the reason behind it.
