Coralea is a great counselor!
We have really loved working with Coralea. My boyfriend (now Fiancé) wanted to make sure we got some issues and better communication skills before getting engaged. Counseling has been incredibly beneficial to our relationship. It’s such a great way to discuss difficult topics in a structured way. I recommend counseling for anyone!
Coralea has been very professional and has helped already tremendously. She responds very quickly and seems to really care about the situation you're going through. Would recommend 100%.
