Peace Partnership

bridge-divider

We are a close team of professionals whose passion is to provide essential counseling services at affordable rates.

It is no secret that counseling is expensive. More people would get help if they could afford the services. We are excited that we’ve found a way to offer the quality care and counseling support that everyone can utilize!

We love working with kids.

We use empathy and genuineness as our fundamental criteria for effective therapy.


Who we are...

We are focused on a meaningful, personal relationship.

Testimonials

  • You know, it is hard for kids to open up to counselors. You make kids feel welcomed and okay with themselves including the baggage that they lug to school and back every day. For that, you deserve a medal. Have a great day.
