Cody has been incredibly helpful as I navigate through major life changes and family relationships. She is an attentive listener, she helps me with accountability as well as strategies for what I’m dealing with. She gives me meaningful “homework” and has a great sense of humor. I feel very comfortable and confident in her care.

Cody is like a very wise understanding friend I didn't know I had. I feel better after talking to her. She trusts my judgment about my own life and goals, and does not tell me how I should feel or ought to act, but helps me to accept my situation and understand what I actually want (not what I "should" want or what other people want me to want). So far I am very happy and relieved to have found Cody.

Cody has been fantastic. Very grateful to have had regular sessions with her throughout this entire pandemic, and the virtual sessions make it really convenient and I can have sessions in the middle of my work week. I think Cody understands me, my challenges and her counseling is helpful.
