Thank you, Laura. Even though “thank you” is just not sufficient. Not nearly strong enough. My gratitude for your presence in my life, your help, love, and support goes far beyond those words. Listening to my story with no judgement and nothing but compassion and love in your heart was extremely powerful and desperately needed. Your impact goes far beyond that though. You shared you story and struggles and offered me tools to help myself in ways that are unique to me and my circumstances and level of comfort. The toolbox you helped me put together is what keeps me successful. I’ll be thanking you every day moving forward.
Laura got me through my first months of sobriety. I had previously been sober for four years but started drinking again 2½ years ago. I reached out to Laura after hearing her interviewed on a podcast, and I am so grateful that I did! I drank to numb, mostly to relieve stress and anxiety, and Laura helped me to find some alternatives to the negative patterns that were holding me back for so long. She also helped me to set some concrete, reachable goals, and I still look at these goals almost every day. I’m going to be 65 years old next month and being sober as I enter my senior years is at the very top of my gratitude list. I love Laura’s warmth and positive attitude, and our face to face chats were one of the bright spots of my week.
I reached out to Laura at a time when I wasn’t sure where else to turn. From the first email response from her to my last session with her I never felt alone. I discovered things about myself I had never realized before… and the journey I’m on now is one I never would have found. This road I’m traveling is so unexpected and so much better than I would have ever dared to dream. Frankly, when I was drinking I didn’t have time to dream, it was all about my next drink. Are you stuck there too? Reach out to Laura.
