“A ship in harbor is safe —

but that is not what ships are built for.”

Hello my name is Marsha. When I met Chad, I was drinking almost every day. He didn't think I'd live for another

3 months. That's how bad I was. Its now it's been 4 years with him, and I wouldn't have any other therapist. He's kind, but lets you know what's real. Happy 4 yr anniversary Chad!

Chad is very encouraging and positive. He is very caring and compassionate. He has helped me understand things in a more positive way. I have been seeing him for 3 years and can truly say he has helped me to be more motivated in my daily life he truly cares and is definitely in this with his whole heart.

Thanks Chad you rock!!!!!

I've never had a therapist that made me feel as comfortable

as I do with Jocelyn Acoff.

She's never made me feel like she was judging me. As far as I can tell, she genuinely cares for her clients and will go out of

her way to help them!
