I’ve been working with Darren at EM Counseling and I have nothing but great things to say. We have been using EMDR and have made great progress in helping me deal with some painful issues. Darren creates a safe space to talk about things and is very solution oriented. I can’t recommend him enough. Thanks Darren!”
Eagle Mountain Counseling is a great place! I loved going here, and just talking. It’s been a really great experience with Darren. He has a great attitude and cares a lot. It’s really cool to see sometimes what out don’t know about yourself, until you talk about it aloud.”
