Client Testimonials


I created a great safety plan that worked, but the most important thing I took away, was the feeling I was worthwhile.

~ Brenda


Now I have the ability to express my feelings and to trust the other kids at school.

~ Mike


I don’t think abuse is a learned behaviour - you either choose to or choose not to. Well, I chose the wrong way and now I’m choosing the right way.

~ James
