“Let me start by saying I am VERY thankful to have had this experience.  With that being said, I dont’ have the words to describe my counselor.  This man is, without a doubt, the most genuine, caring and understanding individual I have ever encountered.  He showed me it was OK no to be perfect but to strive for it everyday.  I believe now that I can help others like myself.”
