Contrary to some beliefs, it is pain, that is the great motivator that gives people the opportunity to make a change in their life - if they choose to. . . Pain from being broke, without a mate, losing a parent, lack of health or pain in the body, it really doesn’t matter - pain motivates. . . Pain wakes us up. It pierces through the noise in our heads & it shoots directly through to our hearts. It can open up our consciousness & awareness to things we’ve not been paying attention to or taking action toward. . . Even devastating things that happen in our lives can push us to wake-up to new realizations about ourselves & it might even push us in directions in our lives we didn’t think about before ... . . ... it happened to me years ago, after Chiropractic College, where life sent me down a road to learn about & experience different techniques for emotional healing. It was at that time that I realized I was passionate about emotional healing & how it directly connected to physical healing. I was a very sensitive person, however emotional well-being was not my strength, as my physicality & athleticism was way out of proportion stronger ... now in my life, I’m happy to say they’re equal. . . Various kinds of pain & painful events give us opportunities to wake up & we decide the meanings as to why these events have happened & how we choose to respond to them. . . Years ago, even though I was going through tremendous amounts of pain, I was also simultaneously realizing my passion at the same time. . . And it became my obsession, that no matter how badly I was feeling & the stuff I had to dig through, it was the clarity of the skills I was learning & my passion & vision of what became my work today, that propelled me along all these years. . . People say bad things happen for us, not to us & I don’t agree with that, but what I do know is that we choose who we’re going to be & what we’re going to do with those feelings, regardless of what happened. . . Put all of your feelings into creating something, regardless what it is ... all the heart break, sadness, rage, anger, resentment. Keep healing, keep evolving & keep creating with it all.

I first went to see Harold based on the recommendation of a friend of friend. Having had typical therapy sessions in my past, I was intrigued hearing about Harold's healing approach, so I reached out to him. In our first session, I was still reeling from my first divorce, my ex getting remarried, and navigating being a single mother to my son and daughter. Harold quickly helped me begin to understand how I needed to unlock my voice and communicate all the feelings I’ve been withholding in order to find my true stengths and to be the best me I can be. That was over five years ago. I've since lost my dear Mom, my stepfather and remarried, only to learn that my second husband was not at all the right fit for me. Through it all, Harold has been there. While my journey is still a work in progress to be sure, Harold continues to guide me and to help me heal, learn and grow.
