I feel very honored to be a counselor. I know how challenging it can be for people to walk in that door for the first time. I also know that when someone refers a person to me for therapy – it’s a big deal. That person is saying “I trust you to take care of this person”. I always feel honored and humbled when this happens – as it did yesterday. I take a moment after hanging up the phone to savor that moment and say thank you in my mind, my heart and a handwritten note. In this moment, my heart swells with appreciation for the blessed gift of referrals.
