"After 10+ years of therapy, I've finally found someone to help me heal from the pain of my past.  Past therapists only uncovered the issues and did not take the time to take me through the healing process and give me practical tips to overcome them.  Thank you, Andrea!"
                                                                - Forgiven

"I have struggled with severe depression for the last 15 years of my life.  I used drugs, drank alcohol, and lived a miserable life.  I have seen over 10 different therapists, and none of them were able to help me like Andrea did.  She not only told me things I didn't know about myself, but she was able to properly diagnose me as being Bipolar.  We set long-term goals and worked together in our sessions to achieve them.  I thank God every day she was brought into my life.  I am now on the proper medication and have been sober for seven months.  Andrea motivated me to quit living the lifestyle I was living and work harder at being the person I wanted to become."
                                                       - Who dat Matt

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you have done for me!  Every time I leave your office, I leave feeling like a huge weight has been lifted off of me - literally! I always go home with such a positive attitude and feeling like I can breathe, I guess you could say. I don't know if you ever get much feedback from anybody else that you see, but if you don't, I just hope you know that I think you are amazing at what you do and just an amazing person in general, and I am sure that all of the people you see think that also!  Anyway, thank you so much, and I am so happy I made the choice to start getting help, and I am also very glad that I chose you!  Thank you!!"
                                                  - Pensacola Client

"I have had a headache for two days.  It was gone when I left therapy today.  I guess it wasn't all sinus pressure.  Thank you!!  You have been such a blessing.  More than you'll ever know!"
                                                - Gulf Breeze Client

"I can't describe the amount of happiness and relief that I feel now since receiving therapy at Bayou Wellness!  You have been such a blessing!  God speaks through you...allowing you to convey a message that both teaches and guides me through so many day to day struggles.  Everything from learning to live with, support, and encourage a spouse that is a recovering addict, juggling a full-time career and 3 children, to helping me with my own insecurities.  You are amazing!  I am so thankful to have found Bayou Wellness!"
