Shell is a wonderful listener and give advice that simultaneously offers things from her perspective but also helps to highlight the reasons for my own. I feel safe talking to her, like she is able to hear me and understand me, which helps me to open up and be receptive to her counsel overall.

Mrs. Freeman always responds to the journals that I send to her when I feel there is something to go off of.

I look forward to my meetings with Shell every week. She really listens to detail on what I say or do not say, and she always knows what to say at the perfect time. She has helped me tremendously with all the ups and downs in my life and has been there through so much. I am so grateful for Shell!

Shell is a brilliant and intuitive counsellor. It is clear that she knows what she’s talking about and always knows how to approach an issue. I feel safe and comfortable talking to her, which is uncommon for me. I would highly recommend
