Marlene always provides a good view and support. I have been able to work through a lot of things with her and find my truth and way out of the darkness. I will be forever grateful
My time with Malene has been exceptional. For almost 2 years she has helped and supported me through some of the lowest moments and also there to cheer me on during my high moments. She makes me feel at ease when sharing about my issues and provides not just excellent advices but lessons that I can apply to improve my anxiety and control my triggers. I am greatly appreciative of Malene for not just listening but understanding the world that I came from and am living in and the complexities of the issues that I struggle with. It was a tremendous comfort to know that on a bad day, I could write to her and that she is there and would get back to me. I am forever grateful for this wonderful experience with Malene and the relationship we have.
Malene is masterful as a counselor. I *trust* her. I can give no higher praise than that. In order for this to work, you must be comfortable discussing what can be very personal issues. Comfort can only exist in an environment of trust. I trust Malene, therefore I recommend Malene.
I truly enjoy speaking with Malene. She listens so well and uses our conversations and what she has learned about me and those around me to further our therapy sessions. I always feel like I’m speaking to a friend and our sessions seem to go by so quickly as I am so engaged and comfortable talking with her.
I love her, Malene helped me deal with a lot of stuff including the death of my mom. She is one of the best counselors i have ever dealt with.
She is very easy to talk too and offers great strategies.
Malene is amazing! She's incredibly responsive, yet I never feel pressured to answer a question or dive into something before I'm ready. She asks questions that help me reflect and reach solutions on my own time. Malene is straight forward, to the point, and is always sending me new resources. I can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and has the expertise to offer them help in a compassionate, professional manner. Thank you for all that you do!
Really helpful and positive! Being able to type out what's bothering me when I can't sleep at night is very helpful to me, and usually there's a reply by the morning!
Malene and I have been working together for about a month. During this time, Malene has helped guide me towards understanding myself and fostering confidence in myself. We try and have phone sessions weekly and I message Malene in between as required. She has also provided me with activities and techniques to give me short term relief from my anxiety and triggers.
Although my journey is nowhere near complete, I have really felt empowered by this experience and knowing I am able to take control of my life and my anxiety.
Malene is a good listener! She has very good plans for a lot of things, and her advices helped me with anxiety and time management.
