"I sought the help of Jenni McBride McNamara to cope with the overwhelming sadness and despair that I felt as a result of divorce and other traumas.  Step by step, with enduring compassion, sensitive wisdom, and very effective strategies, Jenni led me out of the depths of hopelessness to new beginnings and a better version of myself.  Through the gifts of her extraordinary leadership and personal touch in counseling, I've developed more strength and courage and a deeper sense of gratitude and purpose.  I've learned how to trust within and to find joy in the journey again. Working with Jenni has been one of the most important decisions I've ever made in my life, and I am grateful for all the ways that she has shed light on new possibilities and empowered my future."
