These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kathleen Cates-Richardson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.

Written on May 16, 2023 after therapy with Kathleen for 2 months

Kathleen has been so great to work with! She is kind and patient. She's not afraid to ask the hard questions to make me think about other perspectives on the different situations that come up and I really appreciate that. Would definitely recommend!

Work with me!
