“Afton's passion for her work is reflected in her detailed therapy processes. In a time where there is pressure to "speed" things up, Afton's intentional warmth and kindness creates an environment that "paces down" the clients' anxiety and allows them to truly attend to the "healing" process. Afton has developed a therapeutic style that allows her, within the process, to reflect her compassion for her clients and strengthen the therapeutic relationship. My work with Afton enhanced my personal and professional life.” –M.K.
