Relationships can, at times, be challenging and adjusting to the transitions that we experience are often difficult. I believe that through counseling you can find you have the strength to create a sense of balance and understanding. It is my passion to help you come to a place of calm or peace with the loss and life changes that occur. It is my mission to help you recognize the skills you possess to manage the highs and lows of life and the relationships built along the way. It is my belief that all individuals, of all ages; backgrounds; and experiences, have the ability to create change and promote their own emotional healing.
With the gift of
listening comes the gift of healing, because listening to your brothers
or sisters until they have said the last words in their hearts is
healing and consoling. Someone has said that it is possible "to listen a
person's soul into existence."
I like that. ~ Catherine de Hueck Doherty
