"When I first decided to attend counseling, I was a bit apprehensive. I thought, "If I can't fix myself, who can?" But I was at the lowest of lows and had to make one last attempt to save myself from completely failing at every relationship to iniclude the relationship within myself. As much as I didn't want to revisit my childhood, I knew she had to have my entire life story. If I truly wanted to give one last honest 'go' at this attempt to smile again. I would have to face those childhood demons. We started there and muddled our way to the present. The entire time, I never felt alone. I finally found an unbiased, honest and knowledgeable teammate in this 35 year struggle to become happy and assertive. I still have a long way to go. We learn each day of our life how to live and with the tools and insight Christianne has given me. I have no doubt my life is forever changed for the best. For the first time in my life, I am happy with who I see in the mirror and have the confidence that although my life struggles are nowhere near an end, I will be OK. Thank you Christianne and the staff at CASI. You are all truly a Godsend"
"Its difficult to know how to even begin to thank you for your part in putting me back together after losing my husband. Now, I believe I have a better understanding of who I am thanks to your listening ear and patient guidance. You have blessed my life and I feel priviledged to have had you at my side as I walked through the process of grieving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"We want to thank you for all that you have done for us. You were the light during a dark time in our lives, and because of you our renewed relationship is on a path to better and brighter days! You are a very special person and will always have a special place in our hearts. You have often crossed our minds and we count our lucky stars for you coming into our lives when we needed help the most, and thought there was no hope in salvaging our marriage. We are beyond blessed for you, and for providing us with the necessary tools to nurture and heal our marriage back into a happy and healthy one once again."
"I want to tell you how much I appreicate all your did for us. You guided us through a very difficult time and changed the complexion of our marriage. You are very skilled, kind and patient. I wish we had met you years ago so that we could have learned earlier to respect and honor each other. I really do miss seeing you and your shoes."
"I just wanted to say thank you for all you've done. I know its your job but I always like to hear when I'm doing a good job at work, so I thought I would tell you. I don't think I would have been able to make it the last several months without talking to you. You obviously love your job and your are good at it. I've tried counseling in the past and didn't connect well with others! Just know when you're having a long day that you really are helping others!
