"I wasn’t sure couples counseling would help our situation, but I am very happy that we went. Our therapist, Glenn was patient and understanding and listened to both my husband and me. He made me feel relaxed and able to share my thoughts and emotions. This was only our first visit however I feel he helped us address or conflicts and struggles with insightful questions. I am so grateful he has given me hope in restoring our relationship."
