Past/Present Clients

I have worked with well over 2000 clients. My work with them is confidential and none will ever be named. They come from all walks of life from the young person living on the streets to the actor seen regularly on television. All are unique and have something wonderful to bring to the counselling process.

What do you like about this subject?

Counselling comes as natural to me as breathing. I recall as a young girl in elementary school that my friends would come to me with their problems. I knew that I wanted to be a counseller "when I grew up" and have loved (almost) every day of it!
