Norma helped me through the most difficult time of my life. My marriage of twenty years was falling apart and I was extremely depressed. She helped me to focus on the things that were important and that gave meaning to my life which enabled me to regain my confidence and move forward with a healthy life. I now have a great relationship with my two children.
