Stories from people we are proud to Counsel:
One of my clients, Chantisa, dealt with a lot of traumatic experience and struggled with finances, relationships and parenting issues. I spent approximately one year with her to help her through these issues. At the last session, she made a statement that “It took time for me to grow, but I made it.” Lu-Chien – Project IMPACT counseling intern.
