I find Faithful Counseling to be very flexible and I would recommend it to anyone who either does not have the time to schedule with a local counselor or desires a more discrete service. My therapist Brooke seems to be very good at providing encouragement. She is also resourceful with the worksheets she provides. As a writer I find these very helpful. My only constructive criticism I can give is that it would be nice to hear different perspectives on the moments I run into. Whether good or bad it is always helpful to get a perspective that could point out something I really did not notice. My replies are rather long, so that may be a reason. I also understand that therapists have to be careful not to say something that can make things worse for some. However, I always find any word of advice to be helpful even though I may not want to hear it. Sometimes I need it because I am avoiding having to face an important life truth. I don't simply improve to be a better person without being challenged on what I believe to be true.
