Helen has been AMAZING! I was very reserved when I started therapy and wasn't able to identify what I was feeling but Helen gave me the ability open up and really think about and identify what was going on in my life and ways to help deal with it.

Helen is a gift. I'm truly grateful for her guidance and support. I only wish I knew her sooner in my life. She has a natural ability for listening and bringing clarity to others and I felt completely understood by her in just my first session. Most definitely give her a try.
