    Excellent Experience

    Testimonial: 2018-07-30
    "Excellent experience. Cheryl definitely knew how to help me feel strong during such a weak time. Only complaint would be that often it seemed like Cheryl had way too many people scheduled at one time..felt like she was juggling everyone around and i sometimes had to sit there and wait. Not a huge deal but wish it was more 1 on 1 all the time." -   Jennifer V.
