"Often times I found myself going back to our conversations and my notes, able to reassure myself that not wavering from what I wanted was the most important thing I could do for myself. With your help, I was able to achieve exactly what I wanted because I had so much confidence in my plan. I am so excited and happy. I finally feel like I am in the right place, doing what I love and back in the PNW where I am close to my family and everyone else I love. A year ago, this felt impossible to me. Thank you so, so much for helping me get here. Your help and guidance was what I needed to feel good about making these choices for myself and I am so grateful to have you in my life." B.W., Portland
