Christal is a talented counselor with a heart for Jesus. Also I've been able to schedule with her consistently and message with her for questions. Her foundation in the Bible guides our sessions to help me focus of God's truth even in my difficult situation. In just 3 sessions with her I am already feeling much more peace and confidence in Christ. I have a clearer picture now of how God wants me to move at this stage of my life. I thank God for her and for the Faithful Counseling service.

Christal is the only therapist that has broken things down for me and opened up my eyes. I’ve only had 3 sessions with her and I feel more break through and awareness than I’ve had in all my years of therapy. I feel hopeful that I can have a healthier and happier future.
