It is a blessing to love what you do. Listening to people and hearing their stories, helping them see a different perspective and giving them hope …. well, it is a joy and an honor.
I am a counselor who works with women. For a long while now I have wanted to have a safe place to post well researched articles or educational links, as well as my own personal thoughts, that I felt might be helpful for my clients, the brave women who have survived abuse as children and/or adults, the real heroines of the stories. Perhaps this place might be helpful for my friends, family and colleagues who really care about what I do and are my constant cheerleaders. I also wanted a place where readers, if there ever are any, can share their responses and know that their thoughts and feelings are respected and valued. But … I was a teeny bit hesitant … okay, scared, as this web stuff is terribly intimidating to this new kid on the block. So let’s get started, and see where this goes!
