Getting Started

The hardest thing to do is to step out of the safety of the boat. We become so comfortable in the boat that we forget that the water is not even that deep.

For many years I told myself that I would never start a private practice not because I was unable but out of fear. Fear of failure kept me from trying. What I have chosen is that fear will no longer rule my decisions. Through prayer and consultation with other professionals I am ready to step out of the boat and start fresh in my own space.

Others have helped me row this boat for many years and I am sure that others will continue to support me as I venture out into the deep. I have no fear of drowning because I can swim! Even if I get tired I am confident that my faith will sustain me.

So, thank you to all of the supporters of A Fresh Start Counseling LLC!
