Why I work for Therapy Solutions:
It is exciting to work for a family owned agency that offers a faith based approach for client’s who request this type of counseling. One reason I decided to join the Therapy Solutions team is because it is important for me to work with an enthusiastic, friendly and an energetic group of people with a positive outlook! I found that at Therapy Solutions!
