Testimonials

What does the "Butterfly Affect" mean to you?

It means being seen and heard in ways that make it possible for me to just be who I am and have what I would like to have… in ways that are easier on me and on those around me.

May I say to you personally that you handled yourself with great professionalism but yet were very personable.  You helped us feel better about our situation in a most difficult time for us.  May God bless you for kindness toward my family.

The Butterfly Affect

The Butterfly Affect represents my ideas regarding the human condition, the processes of mental and emotional growth, wellness, and the need for active participation in affecting the change we want to see in our own lives. At times we need help reaching the goals we set, perhaps I can assist you or someone you love with emerging from their "shell" and "spreading their wings".
