“I feel it is an honor hearing the stories of my client’s lives. I know for some it can be a very difficult and uncomfortable task to open up, but often those individuals express how helpful it was to discuss something they have been keeping inside. That is the beauty in the counseling relationship and why I love helping. – Christy Elzer
