I had a consultation with Susan regarding my marriage that was toxic both for myself and my children. She listened and helped me see that things were even more abusive than I was even letting myself see. Even though I couldn't retain her she and Linda helped me find resources to help my situation. My battle isn't over by any means but I will forever be thankful that they helped me begin. Thank You
