Testimonials

A Few Kind Words From Satisfied Clients

“After losing my first-born son during delivery, I found myself in a very dark and helpless space. I was advised by many to seek counseling in hopes of helping me through my journey of healing after loss. I was a bit hesitant at first, as I am not keen on talking about my personal endeavors, let alone with someone I just met, but I was pleasantly surprised upon my first few sessions with May. She made me feel extremely comfortable and I felt open to express my feelings and emotions without judgment or criticism. She is great at providing different perspectives, which in turn allow me to process my thoughts and feelings in a new light. May is very patient and has granted me ample time and space to grieve at my own pace. She has been a crucial part of my healing after losing my baby and feeling like I would never recover. There is still a long road ahead for me, but I couldn’t ask for a better person and counselor by my side. Thank you for all that you do! <3”

Thank you so much for helping me in my efforts of raising awareness in memory of Mickaël and sharing the link to the Gofundme. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do. ”
