As I'm writing my first blog entry, I think back to the hundreds of clients and their families I have worked with over the past 17 years. I think about my motivation to continue in this work, which is not always easy. Many people ask me how I can do what I do every day. My response comes easy, without any thought. I have one of the best jobs in the world. I get to work with people, often at their lowest, and help them make changes in their lives. To help encourage them to move from painful to comfortable is enough to fuel my motivation. To see changes in relationships that were once tossed aside fills my heart. To see women whose spirits are crushed, be able to slowly repair those fragile pieces and build a new life, is inspiring. I also know that there times to wait....until they are ready for change. To help them plant the seeds of hope and promise in themselves and their relationships...and wait..and wait...and wait...until the seeds sprout. Sprout seeds, sprout.
