Written by H.E. on Jan 20, 2019 after counseling with Neeley for 2 months

Neeley is very responsive. Even beyond our scheduled time to talk. She listens and understands and helps me make it through the impossible moment I’m in. She has a way of breaking down the impossible to help make it through what I feel I can’t. Literally breaking a day down into 30 minute slots.

It is not easy to trust but she makes me want to try. She doesn’t rush me or push me and gives me space to try. She doesn’t judge me or see me differently for what I share. The space with her seems safe and I’m learning to trust it.

I am so pleased to have Neeley as my counselor. She has drastically changed my perspective of life and the betterment of my life and those around me.

I’ve had two sessions with Neely so far and as a counselor myself her level of expertise and directness is appreciated and needed. I don’t regret being asked to match with her one bit- she’s specialized in trauma, personable and challenges me in the ways I need it.
