Bonnie is a master therapist. Her skilled approach to counselling promotes the greatest form of personal transformation that comes from one's awareness and from one's internal motivation to make changes. Bonnie is able to integrate many different techniques in a focused treatment plan aimed at helping clients find the answers to guide themselves into understanding how they interact in the world. A gifted counsellor is able to hear what is not being said and to ask those questions we haven't yet contemplated. I truly believe, Bonnie has the skills, attitude, and rapport to help anyone wanting something different in their lives.
