“[Dr. Lee-Heart] made me reflect on my growth and development during my adolescence. I would definitely recommend her to others. She is amazing, kind and generous.”

– Anonymous Student Reflection

“Ms. Brenda is always consistent. I knew I was going to learn something each and every day. I knew I would leave the group thinking, thinking about what was discussed in that group and in what ways I could make myself a better person. Ms. Brenda really challenged me to look at my behaviors that led to my addiction. We looked at what I needed to do to change these behaviors so that I would never have to come back to jail again. She would go over this in the group with anyone who was really willing to take a look at themselves.”

“Each assignment was imperative to my growth, but each one was also creative and fun. My experience was that learning is not always monotonous and can be artistic. Her method of teaching also taught me a lot about self-care and how it could benefit my ability to focus and grow in school. It gave me the ability to not only express myself, but it also gave me a lot of freedom. Dr. Lee-Heart allowed a lot of creative freedom and there was always room for me to write how I wanted and about what I wanted.”

“I can honestly say I feel confident that I will stay sober, make positive life changes and never have to return to jail again after my time in Ms. Brenda’s program. She has helped me forgive myself so I’m not stuck feeling shame and guilt which has always been a big problem for me. Today, I can hold my head up high and know I’m not a bad person, I just made a few bad choices. The tools and knowledge that was given in Ms. Brenda’s groups will help em lead a successful life of happiness in recovery, never having to return to jail again.”
