CS Lewis quotes, “Hardships often prepare ordinary people for extraordinary destinies.” I love the encouragment this message sends. Sure enough, if we live in this world, we will be challenged by a few setbacks. The good news is, these moments do not have to define us and they certainly are not the end of the story. Reflecting on my own life, I have recognized (often much later), they became a catalyst to something even better. However, the difficulty of these moments cannot be minimized, and they certainly are not meant to be walked through alone. It is my hope that should you be experiencing some kind of “hardship” you find peace in knowing you do not have to do so by yourself. If you are up against a situation that feels overwhelming or is creating a level of anxiety or stress personally, I encourage you to seek help. Should it be with me, I would be honored to provide compassion, counsel and guidance through the process.

Does any of the following resonate with you?
Feeling anxious, overwhelmed or stressed out on a daily basis?
There are concerns about issues related to motherhood, parenting or marriage and you are not sure what to do?
You desire objective perspective on a situation?
A recent loss or trauma from the past is just not resolving on its own.
If so, counseling can help.
“The truth is our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy or unfullfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our own discomfort that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”
M. Scott Peck
