“My connection with God, friends, co-workers and even strangers have shifted. These connections feel genuine and caring, and bring me a lot of joy! I am definitely seeing through a loving heart rather than a fearful heart and my world has changed!
I would not only recommend but implore anyone who is suffering from depression to reach out. It was exactly this frame of mind that had me reach out to Andrea. I had gone through a divorce, I not only lost my husband but myself(identity or who I thought I was), and I felt responsible for breaking my family apart. I was riddled with guilt and each day was getting harder to live. At one point I even wrote my son a goodbye letter and apologized for needing to take my life to put an end to my pain. Through some God things, I couldn’t go through with it and I started to search for a way out. This story still brings tears to my eyes because I cannot believe how deep and dark my thinking was back then. But Andrea helped me to change that. As a side note, I’ve always dealt with depression so that was not new to me, it was just deeper and darker.
I had gone to therapists in the past and they seem to only want to listen but never gave me direction on how to change my thought process. Andrea broke it down for me. We went over my rough childhood and we focused on healing that young girl who was buried deep in me but lashed out at any injustice she experienced. It was almost as if we took apart a puzzle and put it back together correctly. So my gratitude towards Andrea is pretty huge since I can’t think of a better way to put it! Bottom line if Andrea could pull me out of deep dark despair, she can help you too. And on a lighter note, if you just want a more positive approach to life, she can do that as well. She wants you to find the best version of you and let it shine! No more hiding from being who you were meant to be, she can help you find YOU! I want to add that my life is a million times better since I worked with Andrea. The work she does is a gift to this world!”
