"I will never be able to thank Elisa enough for pushing me to get my past trauma out. TIR was very intense but I know I wouldn’t be where I am with starting my life over without her. I’m a very touch cookie to break but she never gave up on me. She helped me tear down a wall so deep that I see daylight again. I can never adequately express into mere words what she did for me, what she taught me and gave me. I never thought I’d be able to overcome my past drama and trauma but thanks to her I have come to terms with it and know how to handle my anger and emotions. Thank you God for putting Elisa in my path when I needed her the most."        

" We would like to thank Southwest Florida Counseling Center and in particular, Melissa Williams, for the help that we received. Once a week, for several months she was a welcomed and comforting face during a difficult time; her professional attitude was only overshadowed by the genuine human empathy and compassion the she exhibited at each session. The demeanor that she exuded, told us that we were a honestly a concern for her and if, at anytime in the future we should need to, we could call on her without hesitation...She was, and is, a blessing...Thank you
