Both Mikel and Dr. Daigle have been such big help. Every week that I had counseling or a psychiatric appointment I knew I could go to them and let it all out and it was all private. I felt that they have always been there for me and they know just what to do and say to help me out. They have supported me all year and I appreciate it very much, I’m glad I had such good people to go to who genuinely cared about how I felt.

Therapy is not something I would have ever considered due to my ego. I was an athlete and thought that was my way to escape. Unfortunately, it was not enough, with the pressure of school and sports and the demons from my past I started struggling. With no options, I went to Mrs. Miller and she got me into therapy. Through therapy, I learned ways to cope with anxiety. The support I received truly helped me open my eyes and change my perspective. It helped me figure out what was important to me. Without Hebron, I wouldn’t have been able to start my healing process.
