I walked into the counselor’s office full of doubt and unsure why I was trying to get help again. I remember that first day spent reviewing my own health history, my eating habits, drug and alcohol abuse etc. I was lucky enough that time to have met a counselor who cared and had enough time to pay attention to every detail. I was internally screaming out for help. He helped me help myself heal almost immediately, but it was only the beginning of unraveling the pain and self-doubt of 33 years of abuse and the tragic event that started it all. I was able to move forward breaking free to a new me, one that had always been there but never able to be. He helped me become the person I always wanted to become.
