"Do you feel consumed with worry about acceptance from co-workers and bosses due to past trauma? Has something from the past resulted in a sense of incapability toward the future you so desperately desire? Does being on guard against criticism from acquaintances and personal failures have you losing sleep at night, waking up sweating with knots in your stomach, and daydreaming through your husband’s report of his day and your children’s repeated requests to play? Are you too exhausted and overwhelmed to answer your best friend's calls, can even you remember the last time you exercised or meditated?"

"There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the signs of health and success is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. And yet we all struggle to some degree. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential. "

"Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal. "
