"I was actually referred to Saren by another Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who felt that I would individually benefit by scheduling an appointment to meet with Saren. In our lives, we like to think that we’re our own professionals…equipped to handle any of life’s transitions, frustrations, hidden grief and even our own future desires and goals…regardless of the immeasurable pain, nature, duration or immediacy. It’s even more difficult to accept the fact that sometimes we just get plain ‘stuck’ and no matter how hard we try, we feel as if we’re sinking deeper into situations that we’re just not ready to acknowledge or seek help. Our feelings and emotions are kept hidden away but yet we seem to manage that ‘other face’ for everyone else. Nothing ever seems to align; the stress, anxiety and fears eat away at the self-confidence we’ve worked so hard to maintain. I was that person. That was my story… although at the time I initially met with Saren, I was unaware and clueless.
After my first consultation with Saren, I knew immediately she would be a dedicated ‘team player’ for me, to me and most importantly...with me! Never did I feel as if our sessions were “text book” cases that are applied to any and every client. Our sessions were individualized and they catered to my needs and personal growth. My sessions with Saren were definitely created for my own understanding, progress, health and happiness in mind! I gained so much understanding about myself. I made tremendous personal progress that I am so proud about! I am much healthier physically & emotionally. I am a happier and more aligned person within myself and I’ve learned to establish priorities that always have consideration and respect for me!
Together Saren and I developed personal options and paths that were not only beneficial for me, but they were fun and creative too! Imagine that? I know there will always be obstacles in life…that’s just part of living. What I’ve also learned from working with Saren is the importance and role we play to take those tiny ‘day-by-day’ steps that will help us to break down any situation into parts that we really can manage effectively!"
