Having done many similar things as this, it still takes my breath away. Most all life’s challenges are often perceived as impossible until you realize you are on solid ground.
Struggles develop character and teach us valuable lessons.
Today, after nearly 12 years, I packed up my office space within Charis Counseling. I have accepted a new position at the Eating Disorders Center of Denver in their Colorado Springs office and am moving this week. As excited as I am for new professional opportunities and new life adventures, I can hardly bare to think about not being a part of Charis Counseling. It goes to show that you can hold two seemingly opposite emotions in your heart. joy and grief. To all the client. s I’ve had the privilege of working with, I want to say thank you for putting your trust in me and for your willingness to walk a road that is often scary and intimidating. I’ve always said it takes courage to come through the doors of a counseling office as most of us are not too comfortable being vulnerable. I am humbled when clients allow themselves to be vulnerable with me. I hope those I’ve had the pleasure to work with have benefitted from the therapeutic relationship. I know I certainly have learned much, have grown personally and professionally, and have had my heart touched throughout my work with each of you. To my colleagues and partners, I can honestly say that I’ve never worked with a finer group of people. It’s been a remarkable blessing to come to work each day knowing not only that I’ve been among friends, but that I’ve been in the company of talented professionals whom I respect tremendously. Over the years you have also become my extended family. Thank you for your friendship, your support, and for the professional knowledge I’ve gained in your company. Finally, to the original owners of Charis Counseling (including our Florida friend), words cannot begin to express what you mean to me. Ironically, I’d likely not be embarking on this new journey had you not been so generous in your support and encouragement through the years as I took on various professional challenges. Your faith in me both personally and professionally has been a constant source of comfort and strength, and your personal belief and faith in God has been an inspiration. You are not only my colleagues but my role models. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. Sincerely Yours, Jennifer Starkey MA LMFT
Interesting article about the need to teach students about managing their emotions in a healthier way and improving decision making. American students rank higher than most other developed nations on their stress level and also their boredom and lack of initiative at school.
If you want to feel better, do (something) for others. Even better do it, don’t tell anyone and don’t credit for it. Embrace humbleness!
This is a daily wake up call for all dads!
Now for some much needed humor. Enjoy!
A great letter from a psychiatrist about unhealthy, destructive relationships.
Good reminder when things aren’t going well in your relationship.
I am one to not make rash judgments, and to be cautious in my analysis, but the Bill Cosby case at least has people talking about an important subject that we need to address in our society. “The statistics that have surfaced again and again — that only 26% of sexual assaults are ever reported to authorities, that only 3 out of every 100 rapes will result in a conviction — are as disheartening and familiar as ever.”.
