Client Reviews

Hope Gilchrist presented on Social Emotional Learning to my faculty, Teachers evaluated the session. The descriptors used for Hope were knowledgeable, professional, and prepared. The faculty felt the information presented was practical, helpful, and pertinent. Hope provided materials and teachers rated those as useful, complementary, and support continuous learning. Hope Gilchrist' workshop was expertly done but most of all, it inspired teachers to continue their learning around social emotional learning while empowering them to immediately begin modifying their practice. I intend to turn to her again for additional sessions.

Hope Gilchrist is a stellar professional who brings a welcoming, down to earth and compassionate approach to talking about mental health. Hope hosted a mental health workshop for the Alpha Zeta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, and it was received with rave reviews. As members of a predominately black organization, we thought it was important to show our community that seeking mental health treatment is important and it doesn’t make you different or ‘crazy’. She would be a great speaker for any organization!

Hope was one of the first influences who helped shape the therapist I've become today. As a supervisor, Hope was always present and available to guide, reflect, and process sessions. She provided support and encouragement during my formative years and continues to help me build confidence and trust in my abilities as a therapist. I'm convinced that the supervision provided by Hope helped lay the foundation that actively guides my practice today.
