Meet Our Counselors

While people find themselves on their own unique life path, it can be startling to find oneself in circumstances that were not predicted or anticipated. We know that it can feel scary and lonely at times, and we understand that feelings of hopelessness and fear can arise from the unknown of the future or the known circumstances of the present.
