It was a pleasure to work with VaKendall for the last 8 months. He always checked up if it had been too long between sessions and was always encouraging in every way.
Very neutral young man. Great counselor and understanding of viewpoints. Affordable. Realistic.
Vakendall is a fantastic counselor who has helped my wife and I make great, real and lasting progress in our relationship. We love having him to lean on and talk to!
Very professional and very logical.
VaKendall is so easy to talk to. Has a wonderful spirit. I have only been with him 3 times in counseling, but I am certain God chose him for us.
He has been very helpful with ways to help us strengthen our relationship and overcome some difficult things. He's given us tips to help us communicate better and it has made us have more appreciation for each other.
VaKendall is great. He listens very well and gives good advice that actually helps.
Vakendall has been very helpful and insightful, marriage counseling is not easy and he has made it very open and communicative.
