“I had never worked with a counselor before, but it was essential to learn how not to bottle up my emotions.”

“I wasn’t just going to Climb for a job—it was getting me prepared to be successful in a job. For me, group therapy was one of the most powerful parts of the program. It was nice to be able to talk about what’s going on in your life and not be judged. In a group setting, you’re not alone.

Everyone is going through the same thing, so you connect on a different level. I had never worked with a counselor before, but it was essential to learn how not to bottle up my emotions. Now when something comes up at work, the outcome is pretty amazing: I’m able to address things in the moment and have direct, respectful conversations.”
