You’ve probably heard ‘The Starfish Story’ before. You know, the one where a small child is picking up beached starfish and tossing them back into the ocean after a storm. An elderly passerby tell the child that there are so many starfish and she can’t possibly be making a difference to all of them. The child tosses one back into the ocean and declares, “I made a difference to that one.”
This is what I love best about what I do. We are all stranded starfish on a beach at one time or another, and sometimes, all we need is some help to get where we need to be.
I realize that I can’t help everyone, but for the ones that I can, it is so incredibly rewarding to be making a difference with who I can.
I’m a small practice and like to keep things as simple as possible. I will call or e-mail you back personally and treat you like a human, not a commodity.
When you’re reaching out for help only to have to weed through layers of red tape, it can be disheartening and discouraging. I want my clients to feel comfortable and empowered throughout the process.
This Labor Day, I’m grateful for the work that I do, and the people I’ve connected with along the way. I hope to keep making a difference for as long as I’m able.
The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. -Socrates
