Justine Garbaciak

MS | Licensed Professional Counselor

“I strongly believe that the relationship between a therapist and client is the primary factor in promoting change in any therapeutic environment. When we can develop a trusting relationship, which instills hope and positivity, self-confidence builds in conjunction with believing that change is possible.”
