Chou helped me to get started on things I;ve been needing to do for years that I was too overwhelmed to face. She is a great coach without judgement. Now she;s helping me keep at it instead of give up. Thank you, Chou!

Rae & Hower

Chou and her staff are very professional and a true blessing to work with. She;s helped to transform my mental health journey. I;m now able to pass my experiences onto others just as she has. She’s was there when I didn;t know who else to turn to during a very tough time in my life. She went above and beyond when I was in need. She was out of town at a conference and made the time to call me! I’m so thankful for her!
