    For the first time in my life, (after a traumatic event that took place) I decided to take the plunge and seek counseling. I have to admit, it was the hardest thing that I have had to do in my 28 years of life. After that decision was made, the next obstacle was to find the right counselor. After various Google searches and millions of rater comments, I came across Ms. Marcia Barksdale’s website and decided to take the plunge. I was attracted to the fact that she was primarily a woman’s counselor and after emailing her some of my concerns, she not only responded immediately but she made various recommendations in that email!

    Marcia is clearly dedicated to walking with me toward healing with many tools and insights. I felt safe, understood, and cared for as I poured out the childhood trauma and confusion that was continuing to plague my adult life. I am seeing dramatic change and healing take place – it is amazing the impact and makes me wonder how I waited this long to see a counselor.

    As far as spiritually, Ms. Barksdale will help you understand your walk with God, if that is what you seek. Questions will be answered with absolutely no pressure; it is amazing to see things through her perspective.

    If you are looking at this page, that means you are looking for healing. I can't encourage you enough in that journey. I feel confident in the counseling I received and recommend it you wholeheartedly.
