When I started going to Olive Branch Counseling I was a basket case. I could not stop crying, but with the help of my counselor Mrs. Tucker has helped me with so many mental, stressful and emotional issues that I’m now able to deal with problems I have without losing myself. The best part about going to Olive Branch Counseling is we can pray together at every session. I can say that I’m blessed to have a counselor like Mrs. Tucker; she has truly been a blessing for me and my family. Thank you Mrs. Tucker.
