“Struggle is inevitable in life. We may experience various hardships that take away from the joy that life has to offer. As difficult as the journey may be, you don’t have to go through it alone. We can work together to help heal old pain, cope with current stressors and future uncertainty. I will meet you wherever you’re at on your journey.”
