"I have been seeing counselors at Axis Community Health for 8 months now on a weekly basis. The concern and kindness they show, even just asking, "how was your day?" really means a lot when you don't hear those words often. The best thing is that they want to see you succeed and they are willing to do everything they can to help you through even your worst ordeals."
