“When bad things happen to good people, we could get overwhelmed into forgetting about who we truly are and what we stand for. When we encounter life’s challenges, sometimes hope hides from us and we need others, compassionate companions, who will hold up the light for us and keep reminding us that even in these dark moments we still have what is needed. Let me be that companion and assist you holding onto hope, so you can tap into your abilities, your talents and skills, which will get you where you need to be.”
