It is an HONOR to learn...

I have to say, I learn a lot from my clients. I find it is an honor to be a part of someone’s life journey, and yet, I reflect on what it must be like to enter into that “space” the person in front of me is going through. I have learned that veterans do not get the mental health attention they require or need. I wish to advocate for that. I have learned what it is like to live in a Haitian community in the United States; what is it like to be an African-American male; and the struggles of being a local farmer. I write this to say: I want to honor you. I want to honor your past, your decisions (whether perceived to be right or wrong), your goals and your story. I may challenge you along the way, but essentially, I am learning what it is like to live your life, which is unique from all the rest.
