According to Socrates, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” It is my belief that no situation in life is too big or too small for exploration. All people have a right to explore their personal situations within a safe and non-judgmental environment. I have worked in this field for over thirty-five years and still enjoy coming to work every day. I have been honored by the people with whom I work. I have been allowed to accompany them through their many life changes.
“You can’t control the wind, but you can adjust your sails.”
