Comments from those served:

From an adult:
"As a counselee of Jenny TeGrotenhuis, I have had success dealing with
emotional issues because of her style of counseling.   She has numerous ways of addressing issues that made me feel comfortable   One of the ways that helped me the most was the sand tray method.  Jenny has shown quality professional expertise in helping me.   I would recommend her highly for children and adults."

From a mother:
"The education,  feed-back and support I received from Columbia Crossing
Counseling is of great value to me.  I was provided a fresh view of my teen's learning struggles which directly affect his behavior and level of confidence. I learned effective methods of communicating that I will use not only with my children but with all people.  I also learned new approaches to implement in our home school. Sandtray Therapy proved to be effective and even enjoyable in our experience."

From a husband:
"At one point, I found our problems very frustrating. I am now very encouraged about the future we have together."

From a father:
"It allowed us to deal with some difficult issues. Things with my daughter have gotten a lot better."

From a parent and adult client:
"Jenny has worked with my daughter and I through a difficult time of
divorce.  She is professional, caring, and supportive!  She suggested
wonderful resources to help me grow and learn. . . . Her counseling was a 
gift of support, and an outlet to share personal battles.  I love it when I walk away from an experience with new insight!"
