A:  No.  your friend must call us and request services.  You can support her, but let her do the talking. 


Q: If my friend calls and makes an appointment, can I come with her?

A: We encourage each client to have a good support system for this journey!  Good for you for being just that.  However, the counseling sessions are for the individual seeking services. Our suggestion: give her the encouragement to go and meet her afterwards for coffee!
