A Chat with Life Connections Family Counseling
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
One way that I am different from other therapists, I’m told, is that I am very approachable and my clients feel comfortable very fast. This allows us to spend more time doing meaningful work and my clients get results.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When I started Life Connections Family Counseling, I was aware that in our fast-paced, internet-oriented world, people were becoming more and more disconnected. They were doing all their socializing online—their families were hooked into their cool electronics and not having conversations.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with individuals and couples, having the privilege of hearing their stories and seeing their lives and relationships improve. I have wanted to do this work since the age of 13. I truly believe that I have the best job in the world.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
A client, 60 years old, came to therapy for the first time. He’d suffered crippling anxiety and alcohol dependence. He spent one year with me every week and worked hard to improve his life. His anxiety lessened and he was in treatment for his drinking. He thanked me often for helping him improve his life.
