Written by B.E. on Aug 12, 2021 after counseling with Amy for 3 weeks

My daughter loves talking with Amy! She is great for Ava so far. She is easily reached and responds quickly
The website is easy to navigate, my only downside is the 30min time limit. But we are working together to see if there are options.

Amy is the best! She is professional, understandable, gives great advise and listens to me very attentively. She remembers everything from our previous sessions which gives me a feeling of having someone close to me by my side.

Amy is wonderful and extremely helpful, but I feel like teen counseling proves to be unaffordable to the people could benefit the most.
