Client Recommendations

A short poem from a client:

“Rebecca is my counselor and she is helping me so. The first thing she taught me is how to say No. I like to go to her office where we always talk and play. I like to see Rebecca and we see her every other Tuesday. I feel safe there and Rebecca helps to make me strong. My time in her office never seems to be long. Rebecca is a Christian counselor and that is what I want to be. I want to help other people like she has helped me.” *** R.
