Even to know someone is ready to listen to me has helped a lot. I recommend Jeff to anyone that would like to change for the best."  -ET    (italics added)  

“Everybody stands to benefit by talking to someone like Jeff. Having your problems heard without feeling judged helped me battle my anxiety. Jeff helped me develop coping skills so that I can live life the way I wanted and needed.” -XG

"I had the pleasure of being a TA for Jeff my senior year, although the purpose of me being his TA was to help him, he always went out of his way to ask what was on my mind. From the very beginning of my senior year I let him know about constant anxiety issues I was having during my baseball games, and throughout the school year he helped me address these issues. He would talk with me about the game, come to my games and cheer me on, and lastly he was always there to field any questions I had. I truly believe that Jeff played a key role in helping me become more relaxed during games and ultimately helped me play to my full potential. Jeff really is an inspiration to people around him and he’s the type of dude that becomes successful in whatever he does." -J"C"M

"Jeff helped me and our wrestling team, I won a league title, he was coach but also a friend." -BH

"Mr. Hartwig is an outstanding counselor who has an exceptional ability in transforming his clients lives. Jeff not only assists his clients in reaching their potential, but he also guides them to thrive in their lives. I had the opportunity to see Mr. Hartwig change numerous lives at my school site. He is an extraordinary Counselor, Professional, and Emotional/Mental Health Expert."
