Thank You Candyce
I am writing in regards to my daughter’s counselor Candyce Scott; for all the things she has done for her and my-self. I couldn't have asked for a much sweet and pleasant individual, who has worked with my daughter getting her through the toughest and personal moments of her life. Candyce has communicated and collaborated with me in so many ways helping her; getting back on track with weekly visits to our home even her school; where she has been most supportive not only to my daughter, but also to me as well because my work schedule is so hectic. Candyce helps by making sure she gets to her school each week making sure her grades and behavior is where they need to be. Although we are now experiencing being homeless she has been calling and checking on us seeing how we're coping with the change. However, it's hard to find an individual like her who is compassionate; not only towards what she does but also towards my daughter who's very difficult at times with her trust issues. Candyce always find a way to motivate her doing positive exercises that will help her get through. I hope that each of her clients receives the same experience we get while she's visiting, and that is her warm heart. So I hope this letter will help you see what a wonderful, pleasant woman you have working for you. However, words can’t express how grateful, and thankful for all she's done. This is why I need to make sure she gets the proper recognition for all her hard work and dedication.
