Relationship Counseling

Unfortunately, not all stories to repair a relationship end up as a fairy tale. But with Grant, they do end up where they should be. Grant was a critical part for me to come to a realization with what was the right thing to do. I look back on this decision to seek help with Grant as one of my best to allow for a quick and effective recovery. Following a few sessions as a couple, I sought an individual session which was a phenomenal way for me to understand my decision of moving forward was best for me. I have since met someone who seems to be who I am meant to be with. I could add a number of cheesy one liners here but she's not the point of this review - Grant is. :) *cough* She's really amazing! Life works in really mysterious ways. I can't thank Grant enough for helping make this process easier on me.
