H.M, parent

As parents of a young adult struggling with health problems that slid into addiction, Audra was so capable and helpful to all of us. Audra's knowledge and expertise immediately put us at ease; we knew we were dealing with the right person. Audra has a wonderful, matter-of-fact way of interacting with both the client and the other family members. We felt we always had her ear, and her sound, professional advice is a big reason why our son is in recovery, and we can sleep through the night again.

S.L, former ct

I started working with Audra after my depression had become a real problem. I was not happy about going to counseling, but I knew I needed something. Audra met me with support and directness, when I needed it, she was able to help me make some real progress and I started to feel better. In the end I learned some great ways to manage my depression and I know I can go back and meet with her any time I need some extra support.

A.W, workshop attendee

I attended "Raising Resilient Children" workshop and Audra is a very engaging speaker and easily connects with the audience. Audra is knowledgeable and makes real life suggestions that are applicable to her discussion topics. Leaving the workshop, I felt I had learned some new things to help me parent.

Parent Attendee

Attending the "Freshman 6" Program was eye-opening. It was a great program for parents and students to attend together. Audra addressed the reality of the college alcohol and drug scene and gave students specific strategies for not letting these things ruin their college experience or their lives.
