I'm so happy I chose Waynettia as my counselor!
She is extremely wise! Shes is such a warm, nice, and patient person, and someone I really look up too!
From the minute she answered the phone for our first session I already felt so comfortable talking with her.
I look forward to our sessions, and I've been making so much great progress.
I leave our sessions feeling calm, empowered, And with new skills every week.
Thank you Waynettia Kirtsey
