Testimonials

  • It’s created a protective safe haven for us because we feel like we can call on them when we need help. When we have rough days, I call my counselor and she talks me through that day and that helps me feel better. It’s the same for both children. We all love it!
    – Adult client
  • The Center has helped my dad because I feel like he’s getting better at being understanding how I’m feeling. We can be more open with each other instead of being quiet about everything.
    – Teen client
  • The Center helped me understand there is no right or wrong way to grieve.
    – Teen client
  • The Center helped me open up to people, to tell them how I really feel. At first, I just used to keep it to myself, but then coming here and answering the questions helped me get a lot off my chest.
