Client Feedback

Clients have made the following statements regarding the counseling services they have received:

I feel my personal issues were identified and discussed in detail. Practical and useful insights were provided to address these issues.

I'm extremely glad you're able to do a sliding pay scale, so I can have regular counseling.

I am very pleased with my counselor. I can already see a difference in my life.

It is so nice to feel Compass provided a safe place to discuss my problems. My counselor is open and non-judgmental.

I feel like I can tell my counselor things that I might not want to talk about with my parents, but get better feedback than when just talking with my friends.

One hundred percent of our clients who completed surveys "strongly agreed" or "agreed" that counseling was helping them gain the tools necessary to resolve their emotional and physical challenges.
