Client Reviews

Celeste is an amazing therapist. From the first appointment I had with her she has changed my life and given me hope. She is very in tune and intuitive. Many times after listening to me she has made one comment that changed my thinking. I have recommended her to many friends because I trust her with their mental health as well as mine. She is a gifted therapist. I'm forever thankful that I found her.

Celeste Benesch is amazing! I highly recommend her.  I have two teens with different personalities and different challenges and Celeste has a gift for connecting and relating to each of them.  They both separately felt comfortable with her within the first couple of sessions and wanted to continue seeing her.  I noticed improvement right away with both of my teens and have continued to see tremendous improvement in their behavior and attitudes.  We love her!
