"Since I was a child, people have always talked and confided in me. I don't really know why. I seem to be able to help people. People really tell me I have some kind of healing quality. But mostly I just listen. They tell me they feel better. Also it seems they find themselves making some different choices. Somehow their lives seem to get better. All this doesn't really have much to do with me. It seems like something they have come up from within. I just create a space to talk."
"Now I suppose over the course of time I have collected degrees, licenses and stuff like that there, I don't really know if it makes much difference. I think I would do this kind of thing anyway, as I always have."
"I treasure everyone that I have had the privilege to meet. They have all been precious human beings doing their best they can in a most strange and interesting world. I look forward to meeting you and hearing about your life and your challenges. It would be my honor and privilege to work with you."
