These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Yvette Smith. 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.
Yvette is wonderful - I cannot say enough good things about her. She told me the truth even when it was hard and helped me realize how capable and empowered I already was, if I just used what I had in a healthy way. Our sessions have been transformative and truly beneficial. She's the best!
Yvette is amazing! She has helped, encouraged, corrected, supported, and directed me in many ways. Sharing the same faith has been so helpful in our sessions, and I thank the Lord for connecting me with Yvette.
She is a very honest person and that’s what I need in my life now.
Yvette takes time to listen and understand, and also has a vey lovely and caring personality making her an easy person to open up to and share with. Thanks for your guidance and wisdom!
Awesome. Simply awesome
