Written by L.E. on Feb 14, 2020 after counseling with Kathleen for 3 days on issues concerning relationship

Due to our work schedules an online platform was perfect for my wife and I to talk through issues together. We were both very skeptical with the whole process and didn't really know what to expect. Our first interaction with Kathleen was more than I expected. She did an awesome job getting us both talking and opening up. We have already found out some things that open our mind to see things and look forward to this journey. Kathleen I feel is an excellent guide and perfect for what we were in need of.
