Finding Hope and Strength Through Counseling

I began my counseling journey in November 2023, after grappling with immense personal challenges.
Following the tragic loss of my stepson to overdose and witnessing my husband’s struggle with grief and
substance abuse, I knew I needed support. Despite initial hesitation and delays, I finally connected with Rachel through my company’s EAP on November 16th, and it was a turning point.

Since starting counseling, my life has transformed in profound ways. I’ve learned to implement the insights gained in sessions, empowering myself to assert boundaries, prioritize self-care, and reclaim joy in my daily life. A particularly toxic situation at work, which had been draining my energy, was effectively resolved with Rachel’s guidance. This newfound strength allowed me to confront the issue head-on, leading to a positive outcome where the toxic influence was removed.

Personally, I’ve also made significant strides. Through counseling, I’ve discovered the power of setting
boundaries, even with close family members, which has liberated me from longstanding obligations and
allowed me to experience a holiday season free from stress and dread for the first time in decades.
Looking ahead, I feel more hopeful than ever about my future. The tools and confidence I’ve gained through counseling have equipped me to face any challenges that come my way. I’ve learned to value my own worth and happiness, enabling me to navigate conflicts and confrontations with resilience and grace.
Rachel, my counselor, has been an invaluable guide on this journey. Her ability to truly understand and support me has been transformative. From laughter to tears, she listens attentively and remembers details from our conversations, making me feel truly heard and validated. She has become a beacon of hope, joy, and positivity in my life, for which I am incredibly grateful.

I firmly believe that everyone can benefit from counseling. The insights I’ve gained and the personal growth I’ve experienced are invaluable. Rachel has been not just a counselor but a partner in my journey toward healing and empowerment.
