"There have been periods in my life where I have needed support to find emotional balance and clarity. Fortunately I met Kurt through a mutual friend. When sifting through my emotional baggage I can not always do it alone. I sometimes need someone to help me face my deepest fears and pains. Someone who could help show me a way to address, reevaluate, purge or simply realize the fears are not that unmanageable."
"When addressing vulnerable places within myself, it is not easy to let someone else see those dark corners.
To me Kurt is like a torch, shedding light on the pathway through the darkness. There are no judgments, there is deep compassion, empathy, understanding and loving support. Kurt listens and really hears what is being said and knows how to gently yet firmly help me along."
"It is not Kurt's plan to be my life long Counselor, rather his goal is to teach me how to manage on my own. Because of his service I am becoming empowered, enthused and excited about my healing and ultimately my freedom.
I have been to enough counselors to see many of them are there to help me but their own lives need just as much help. In Kurt, I see him work his truth, speak his truth and live it. I respect that and because of it, I trust him with the most precious thing I have...my well being."
