Penny is terrific. I feel very very comfortable talking with her. Her insight into how my mind works has opened so many doors for me in regards to handling emotions and feelings appropriately
I love her! She is such a great therapist! We vibe together and she has great compassion!
Penny is so understanding and brings many things into perspective. I simply feel so much better and in control of myself when I speak or chat with her
I love her. She is so helpful and I feel like I'm able to be honest with her. Her advice is very very helpful.
I feel that Penny understands my issues and is a very good listener and gives great advice.
Penny's guidance has allowed me to make progress on issues that have plagued me for years, that no other therapist has ever been able to help with. My sessions with her have given me courage and confidence that I never thought I could possess. She's stayed with me through some very dark days, and I know that I always have her in my corner. The comfort that brings is inexpressible.
Penny is incredible. She is so good at listening as well as offering tools to process my emotions. She has helped me so much. My mental health would not be doing this well without her.
I love my sessions with Penny. I know that when I tell her what I’ve been going through she will understand and validate my experience. She is very insightful and after every session I feel much better about my situation and I always have new tools to work with for the following week. Thank you Penny!
There is never a session with Penny where I don’t leave feeling more at ease than when I started. She’s always so great at helping me to build the strategies I need for success, and also just being a kind ear when I need to talk it out and figure things out for myself. Penny has been there for me through multiple big changes/decisions in my life, and I’m so grateful to have had her compassionate and caring guidance. I came to better help with lots of anxiety surrounding therapy and Penny has been the perfect counselor to put me at ease with all of that and help me to actually move forward. I see real, positive change in myself since I’ve began my sessions with her.
Penny is great! I feel comfortable sharing very private parts of my lifestyle and she has such helpful insight and is so kind. I discussed the questions I had with my previous therapist that I felt stuck on and she offered ideas that have helped me to move forward.
Penny has had a significant impact on my life. The best money I have ever spent was for her as my therapist.
I love Penny
Penny is an awesome therapist who really cares and is very compassionate and understanding and you can talk to her about anything.
Thank you for the help and unwavering understanding. Penny is a good person.
Penny has offered me the support and guidance I have searched for in a therapist for years. She is highly experienced and professional.
