Ms. Sarah has gotten me through some of the hardest times in my life, she has helped me deal with those hard times from the past, and continues to give me guidance for the future!! Her knowledge and wisdom are incredible and there is not one time have I ever felt like I couldn't tell her anything and there is no judgment, no belittling, just empathy, compassion, and validation. I literally owe her my life!!! Thank you, Ms. Sarah. Words cannot express my gratitude!!!
I’ve only been working with Sarah for a short time, but right away I felt like she understood me. She has been incredibly helpful and I look forward to more sessions.
Sarah has been the best counselor I could ask for. I think she understands what I'm struggling with and has given me some good relaxation techniques to practice. I appreciate that she has faith experience as these are important to me.
I have been working with Sarah for a few weeks now and I can’t say enough good things about her. She understands what I am struggling with and has supportive advice for me. She gives me worksheets with things to work on, tips and suggestions for relief, and also is a huge supporter and motivator! I can’t say enough good things about Sarah. I am so blessed to be working with her!
I’ve had one other experience with online counseling and to compare Sarah with my previous counselor, Sarah is by far better. Some may feel that online therapy is less personal than face-to-face counseling; however, that is not necessarily true in every circumstance. Sarah is prompt with her responses and clearly writes with compassion and helpful advice. I feel a connection with Sarah and am completely open with her...more so than I would be with a face to face counselor.
I've been working with Sarah for about 5 days and she has made a huge impact on my life already! She listens to me, asks me questions, and helps me think things through before offering her knowledge. She is an absolute blessing to me and I am so incredibly grateful I found her!!!
Sarah recommended steps for me to reach out to a friend and resources that would be helpful for me in other issues. Appreciate her expertise!
It is so nice to have someone who actually hears me and who wants to see me succeed.
