"When 'I' is replaced by 'We' even 'Illness' becomes 'Wellness'."

"One of my favorite quotes, 'What I am is good enough, if I would only be it openly.' speaks volumes about the power of counseling. Being able to offer a safe space for students to explore their thoughts and feelings, can instill inner strength to help them chase after their dreams and pursue the best versions of themselves."”
