The pain is gone! 
--HY, following dental implant

I wanted to let you know that the session we had together was profound. It really was a re-integration of a part of myself. Thank you. 
--MH, coping with anger management

The trauma is not completely gone, but I can talk about it now without crying. I used to not even be able to bring myself to talk about it, even though [my daughter] lived. 
--LS, overcoming trauma of witnessing a near-fatal accident

The session helped me to accept things the way they are. There is a reason why x or y happens, even if we don't see it right now. 
--AM, working on self-acceptance
