Mariel is very helpful. I need to work on my perspective. She helps a lot by having different perspectives and offers a fresh way to look at things. I also like her strength and confidence with the Bible. She often finds scripture that may be of help to me. She isn’t pushing it just offers scripture that might be helpful. She listens well and respects my opinion.

Merial is so personable and is a fantastic listener. We’ve done several video sessions and after every one I’ve been given something to work on for the week which has helped lessen my anxiety by a ton! She’s the best!

Mrs. Berry has been wonderful so far. She really listens and understands my needs and how I got to where I am now. She is very insightful and always gives me another perspective of viewing myself. So far I have really enjoyed her as my therapist.
