I was going through one of the toughest seasons of my life and I am so thankful I had Charnell to walk me through it. Counseling has made a tremendous impact in my life and I am a better person because of it.

Charnell is truly professional. Speaking with her on the first day felt like I have known her for years. I blurted out all the hurts I have been carrying for years just on the first day. I really look forward to having my sessions. She is great.

Charnell comes alongside and helps me patiently look at things from a different perspectives. She also uses the Bible to help keep me calm. She is very patient and never judges in the many times that I fail and make mistakes along the way.
