I am a Social Worker and a Drug and Alcohol Counselor... I try to be strong for my clients who range in age from ten years old through late adulthood.
My sessions in Individual Counseling, Group Therapy, and Family Intervention aren't the most difficult times for me. While sitting in traffic on my way home in the dark, when I am alone with my thoughts, when I am faced with down time... I struggle with my own demons.
I want you all to know that I find courage to get through each day because of you. Each one of you brings your own unique story to this group, to this Community, and to my life. We may never talk, we may never meet, this message may never reach you in a more individualized manner than the words in front of you now... but please know that in this moment, you matter.
Thank you for being here.
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness... And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone...
