Laverne has been amazing at walking through this season with me! She listens and helps me process through, gives me helpful resources and action steps. I’m grateful for her expertise and kindness!!

For the short time I have had the opportunity to be counseled by Laverne, it has been delightful. I have had some sessions where I was able to unload concerning each matter in my life. She has listened. She has also given me the tools I need to make the necessary changes in my life so far.

Laverne was kind and open right away. She knew what she was talking about and always has useful resources available to help me walk through my problems and get to the root of my struggle

Counseling is still a relatively new process for me and I’m not sure what the take away will be or how we’ll achieve it . But so far I’ve found Laverne to be approachable and encouraging. I feel comfortable talking with her. I like that she has a bit of flexibility in her schedule .
