“I have worked with Peggy frequently and can certainly recommend her as a counselor. As a pastor/counselor, I have been able to rely on Peggy as a consultant on a variety of situations and have been able to refer people to her with assurance they will be in good hands. Peggy is a caring and creative force in the counseling world and I know that anyone who works with her will be changed and strengthened in a positive way.”
