I was so depressed I could hardly get out of bed and my counselor helped me understand that even things we can't exactly remember can affect the rest of our lives. I have done more gardening this spring than I have in the past 5 years put together! Thank you I'm glad you're there. Everyone is polite and patient, I never have to sit in the waiting room long and nobody knows why I'm there. The counseling rooms are cozy and warm, not cold and clinical. I am anxious to use the rest of the facility.
