“I came to the Total Life Counseling center to seek help for my son because I had so many concerns. I met Ms. Card who was very helpful and professional as she knows what she is talking about. She assessed my son and figured out what is the weaknesses and strength points in him. She was a pleasant person, polite, patient, and she handled my son very well. She knew how to act and react with him. She was very nice to everybody. I am happy, I met her, and I am satisfied with her service and help. We will stay in touch to complete whatever is needed to help my son.”

Thank you Ms. Card
