Message to clients

It is extremely beneficial to take time for yourself 1 hour a week to be yourself and not feel judged. It is so important to work on your mental blocks by allowing yourself to be feel free to speak about your thoughts and feelings. Allow yourself to talk and be prepared to write a new story during the counseling session. Come prepared to confront your fears and end any blocks that have been stopping you from growing.
