Looking back, I am so grateful that I had the presence of mind to reach out to Laura when I did. Although I wasn't coping with grief at the time, I felt that I was struggling to preserve autonomy and space in a life that was becoming increasingly crowded with obligations to my job and family. I knew that I needed help constructing pathways into a new, brighter, and happier chapter in my life, but really didn't know how to go about laying the foundation.  Laura's compassion, encouragement, and "heartwork" exercises forced me to think critically about where I was spending my time and how to build more enriching experiences into my life. I'm glad I had an opportunity to work with her.
