Client Feedback

"Wendy has greatly impacted my life because she has taught me how to handle my emotions in a more healthy way, and has taught me how to deal with toxic relationships in my life. For that I am forever changed and thankful."
-Beighly
 
"I met Wendy my freshman year and if you asked me back then if we would be as close as we are now I would say no without a doubt. She was that one mentor that made sure you weren’t messing around and would check you quick, fast and in a hurry but everyday I thank God that I met her because without her I don’t know where I would be.
 
My last year of Middle school my ending grades were all C’s and I had the mind frame that, that was okay. It wasn’t until I met her that I realized I had the potential to do better. I’m a senior now and will be gradating in May and thanks to her I’ve been on the Honor Roll each year of high school and have gotten accepted to a variety of colleges. Wendy gives me faith to keep pushing when I feel like I’ve given my all and when I’ve done my best she lets me know that I can always accomplish more."
- Joslyn
"Wendy Hawkins my mentor has impacted my life so much because before I met her I didn’t know what self-worth was and how to love and care for myself. And I didn’t know how to be independent, strong, and work hard for the things that I want. She has taught me that if you was something you have to get up of your butt and get it and how to stay positive when things are going wrong."
- Shelzaray

"I have really benefited from the services I received. Wendy helped me with my goals, maintaining perspective, and teaching me tools to handle situations that I was struggling with. She is compassionate and created a feeling of being safe during our sessions. I've had a lot of unpleasant experiences with therapy in the past. Wendy helped me gain trust again and helped me realize how valuable therapy is."
