I came into counseling when my mother died unexpectedly. It was like having the rug pulled out from under me. Suddenly, I did not know who I was any more. I had not realized how important my mother was to my own self-identity. I had a lot of crying to do, and I had a lot of questions to answer about what my own life was about. Bryan Austill at the Center led me through my grieving process and set me on the path of self discovery. Not an easy path, but I could not have done it without Bryan.
