Here is what people are saying about Express Yourself Today....... ~"My family and I are extremely grateful for the help Dari gave our daughter during a very stressful time in her life. Dari is a warm, encouraging, friendly person who made my daughter feel comfortable and helped her ease the anxiety she was experiencing in just a few visits. We can't thank Dari enough for her help and would whole-heartedly recommend her to others as an extremely professional and effective therapist!"
~ "I am the mother of a 7 year old rambunctious girl. Dari's counseling has been nothing short of remarkable. The techniques that she has given us (that really work) have made for a happier and calmer home life and a much happier child!"
~ "My daughter, a bright but very shy student, began high school in a new town where she did not know anyone. She was doing fine at first, but began to fall apart during the latter part of the year due to verbal/psychological bullying by a girl in her class, who she had considered a friend. I don't know what we would have done without Dari and Express Yourself Today. Dari was just what my daughter needed. She provided practical down to earth advice and never made my daughter feel like she was "sick", just a normal teenager trying to cope with the stresses of growing up."
~ "I have twin girls that are in 7the grade and Express Yourself Today has helped them gain confidence and self-esteem."
~My 17 year old daughter was with a well known therapist for the last 7 years and seemed to be getting nowhere. When she walked out of a session, she was still down and the other therapist didn't give my daughter coping mechanisms to deal with life. Since we have been going to Dari my daughter's self-confidence has been boosted and she feels like she can cope with life. She walks out smiling and with a positive attitude. I couldn't ask for anything more (I think Dari is wonderful).
~Dari Dyrness-Olsen knows exactly how to ask the correct questions, elicit answers that make her clients think. Which is, after all, what her help is all about. She is cheerful and has wonderful ideas!
~I am a 45 year old mom of a wonderful 15 year old. Recently I have had many issues, not with my daughter so much, but with self-love and respect. Dari has been extremely instrumental in helping me find my way and in the end, finding the love that we all need for ourselves. Dari has also spoken to my daughter because....of well, the simple fact that every young girl or a girl who is growing into a beautiful young woman they have problems and just need an outsider to help. I would put my life on the line for Dari Olsen simply because she has helped me get my life back. To anyone who may be reading this, know for a fact that Dari is a one of a kind person, she has the smile of an angel and love for what she does.
