In Their Words Read what people like you have said about Five Stones Therapy. Testimonial “I sought out EMDR therapy after an unsuccessful attempt with another therapist. Once I met with Bonita, we developed goals for my therapy and began the process. Through therapy I had a better understanding of how to feel, listen to, and process my feelings, both mental and physical. I was only in therapy for a little over two months and completed my treatment plan. This was a wonderful experience for me.”– Client in their 40s. Testimonial “My therapist, Bonita Ashe, has been extremely helpful in assisting me with trauma and grief from my past. She was adept at helping me build a trusting relationship with her. This was extremely necessary for me. Being able to be open about issues that I needed to address was imperative to my healing process. I appreciate her understanding nature and the ability she has to identify the situation at hand and directly deal with the pain/grief/confusion it presents. I have never been a person who thought that I could be helped by counseling. I was mistaken in that assessment. I feel that I was greatly helped. I told Bonita that she helped me untangle the cobwebs that had developed in my mind due to multiple trauma and grief incidents in my life. I am forever grateful that Bonita was the person I chose to walk through the haunted hallways of my past. She is an amazing therapist and even more so an incredible person.”– Client in their 50s Testimonial “ Bonita was thorough in educating me on the technique, coping skills and how the brain works. She was intentional in making me part of the process with goal setting and frequent check ins on how I was feeling. She kept me on track and focused (I tend to sometimes show up to therapy for someone else who isn’t in therapy *chuckles*). Bonita met me where I was at and was also honest/gentle with me if she sensed any resistance/denial to something I needed to address but wasn’t sure I wanted to. I thoroughly enjoyed Bonita’s style. Past experiences in therapy made me feel like I was very separate and broken. Bonita had a very personable way of making it feel like a natural conversation.”– Client in their 30s. Testimonial “I came into counseling with Bonita for experiencing crippling anxiety and feeling unsafe all the time. I was in survival mode in almost every aspect of my life including my relationships and my spirituality. The counseling process helped me to explore the depths of my experiences, how they impacted how I view myself, and what I would rather believe about myself. I struggled at first to find something positive to believe about myself that felt true. With Bonita’s care and challenges, I began to see my worth, to believe I am loved, and to be confident that I am safe. I am immeasurably grateful for the way God used Bonita in my healing journey. His presence and wisdom within her is what makes the difference.”– Client in their 20s Testimonial “I found Bonita’s knowledge, guidance and insight most helpful. With her guidance I learned to listen to who I am, realize my value and communicate more effectively. She always got where I was, met me there and gently but persistently helped me grow into a better place/person. I obtained skills to help me solve future problems that previously had me stuck. Bonita involved me in treatment planning from the beginning and showed interest in helping to define my needs.” – Client in their 50s. Testimonial “I came into therapy in the spring. Bonita was very helpful in providing someone to talk to who shared my belief system. She was kind in letting me go at my own pace without rushing through therapy. She taught me how my thoughts affected my actions, and helped me to understand what I could and could not control. I value the coping skills Bonita taught me as well, these are things I can use now that I no longer need therapy.” -Client in their 50s Testimonial “I feel Mrs. Ashe was very helpful in recognizing specific areas that I needed to deal with, and developing a plan to address those needs. She was very patient in letting me process at my own speed, and also very encouraging.” – Client in their 40s Testimonial “Ms. Bonita helped me achieve the results I was looking for in counseling, and obtain skills and tools to help handle any future problems. She was understanding of and showed interest in my needs. I was thankful to have someone push me to know I am good the way I am and that I can daily grow into a better person.” – Client in their 30s Testimonial “Wow!!! What can I say about about Ms.Bonita? She is an amazing, thoughtful, and very caring therapist. My life had been crumbling for many years from childhood trauma and subsequent emotional abuse that I had been experiencing in my marriage. I was so emotionally beat down when I started with her I didn’t even realize what was going on within myself. I just knew I was broken. After several months of her being an intrinsic part of my life through therapy, I am Now a strong, confident, independent thinking person. I was able to recognize with Bonita’s help exactly what I needed to do to change my situation…..by utilizing the tools that she afforded me. After working through my childhood and marital trauma issues……learning to be assertive and setting boundaries with others was the icing on the cake for me. I thank Ms. Bonita immensely for instilling the tools in me to help me make the best decisions for my life, while also keeping my Christian beliefs and values in mind.I am grateful for a new beginning. She has been a pivotal key to my life success.” – Client, age 50s Testimonial “For decades I struggled with anxiety and guilt.
