I am so happy that you persisted and have arrived at the right place. I also appreciate your honest expression of your feelings about the issues you have faced. Your obvious grasp of emotional intelligence will be a great help to you as you provide a caring presence for others. Having done this work for years, I know regardless of all of the work we have done with the technology, there are still things that happen. Hope we can all move forward with as few problems as possible.
You have a very unique and diverse professional journey and therefore a great deal to offer in our collaborative learning journey.
I also appreciate your openness in the sharing of your personal journey. I too went through a painful divorce many years ago and learned a lot about counseling from the other side of the desk and about the pain that such breakups can have on all members of the family.
