I still remember insights that were shared with me at the Center in the past, and I hear regularly from colleagues who benefit from the wise counsel they continue to receive.”

“I appreciated the analysis of skills and interests. The tests (though exhaustingly thorough!) helped reveal some interests and skills I didn’t know I had, and it was presented in a helpful manner.”

“This was not at all an unpleasant or threatening process. The staff was very helpful and accommodating.”

“The most helpful part of the program was coming to the realization that my wife and I can build a new paradigm of making decisions together for the career needs/hopes we presented. We gained courage. The time exploring recent struggles related to career issues/family issues was helpful in anticipating future plans. I left with a feeling that I understand myself better.”

“I received insights that have made a real difference in how I see and know myself. I wish I’d known some of these things earlier! I also appreciated the counselor’s compassion and pastoral style.”

“I felt truly blessed to have participated in such a rewarding and affirming experience. I am now able to move forward and put many things into perspective. I am feeling more centered, in balance, directed and integrated than I have in a while.”
