Marlene is patient, understanding, and truly empathetic of my needs. I instantly felt comfortable with her. She understood my issues while highlighting my strengths and teaching me how to use my skills to move forward in a positive manner. While at times, opening up can cause pain and frustration, she knew how to provide the right tools to cope with my feelings and process the underlying emotions. I’m grateful for her and the therapy received and will be a better person for it, God willing! I Highly recommend her and feel it is a life changing experience. Thank you Marlene!
I appreciate the services - so helpful in a time of need.
Marlene is very sweet and is goal-oriented. She uses lots of worksheets but they are helpful.
Marlene is so great! I’ve been with her for about three sessions and I already feel better about myself. She helped me realize things about myself that I couldn’t see.
Marlene truly listens and responds effectively to my words and actions. She is great at being understanding and providing tools that can benefit in the various parts of my life. Even though this is my first month using this service, I feel that I will be able to resolve many of my concerns thru my counseling sessions and assignments provided by her.
