After going through a divorce and breast cancer within a two-year period, I found myself in the middle of a major life transition. The aftermath had me rattled, to put it mildly, but I was able to pick myself up off the floor and put my life back together. And, I was ready for a change of career. I realized the common threads which gave meaning to all of our lives was our common bond through hardships, and it is within relationships, and while listening to others that we start to really know people. Becoming a counselor seemed like an excellent evolution of my gifts and my life experience.
I think we all have times when a monkey wrench gets thrown into our lives, and we are not quite sure how to handle it. Sometimes it is an illness that causes suffering, or sometimes it may be that we have been holding so many things back that one event can cause us to feel we are falling apart. I am inspired to work with clients to help them use their innate wisdom and the clarity, nurturing, and tools I provide to emerge from suffering feeling stronger and nurtured.
