Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe people are seeking their souls within themselves, especially in times of grief or trauma. Somehow during times of major change, loss or crisis, being human fails us. We get tired, confused, isolated, overwhelmed, demanding or self-destructive. I’ve seen it repeatedly in clients with addiction or abuse histories who cut off from their strengths and needs to avoid being vulnerable. Often they get lost. They don’t know who to be, how to be, or what to do. Creating a place that is safer, with a person who is truly present, can help regain realness and balance. It’s rarely easy. Healing can hurt, especially in places that don’t show up in an X-Ray but sometimes being human is about truth and hope.
