-My counselor was very attentive to my needs while grieving. She was always available by phone or text. I like the various techniques she introduced me to and would recommend her without hesitation. -BG
~Janice went above and beyond to help me during my time of need. She was/is always there for me, and she really took the time to answer my needs individually, which is something I never received from any other therapist or psychologist. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for therapy, especially for those who want a spiritual and faith based approach. -PN
~Janice, I will tell you this from the bottom of my heart. I could never thank you enough for all that you did for me. I truly would never have survived my 2 year trial without you. I share our story all the time about the times my husband and daughter would have to carry me in and without even knowing what you were doing I would walk out in my own. Still in pain.. but able to walk straight. Every time I do energy work I thank you!! and now.. from the bottom of my heart I thank you for healing me, supporting me, loving me, and giving me the courage to survive another day. The Angels brought you to me. And now I go forth in your honor because you showed me the way. You are a blessing to me!! An absolute blessing.. always have been and always will be! -CC
