I can’t say enough good things about not just the counsellors, but the staff too. Everyone here is so willing to help and go that extra mile. Even though there may be 20 or 30 people here at a time, it feels it’s just you sometimes. I can really appreciate that, because I need it right now. I’m broken and I don’t need to be fixed, but I need to know how to have the tools to fix myself and that’s the biggest thing that they did here and I really appreciated that.
