I'm Yvonne Lewis
Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Guided Imagery Therapist
I never wanted to be a counselor. I was in search of a bigger purpose and heard Eckhart Tolle recommend that rather than asking what you want out of life, ask God or the universe what it wants from you. I made the fortunate mistake of asking the question and I got the answer, not just once but three times--three days in a row by three different people.
"You should be a counselor."
Doing so meant I would have to go back to school to finish my undergrad and go straight into my Master's program--not something I wanted to do while working and raising four children. But I did because I was too afraid to ignore the very clear message I received.
I never wanted to be a counselor but can't image doing anything else. I'm always so amazed at the strength, courage and wisdom of complete strangers who reach out for help and transform their lives. I've been asked how I sit and listen to people talk about their problems all day, but that's not what I do. I offer a support, guidance and a safe space so that individuals can heal from their pain and live a life of purpose--and that is my hope for you.
I'm so glad you're here!
Enough about me. I want to know you and your specific needs. Let's talk about how we can work together so you can create the life you want.
"Our own life has to be our message."
