Thank you so much for working with me for over a year. Your insights have been very helpful and will follow me as I move on in the directions in life you have helped me create and manifest. I will miss you and will look forward to our Skype sessions.
I have been wanting to send this note of gratitude for some time!! I am so appreciative for the supervision! I really appreciate your support, guidance, and encouragement at a very unsteady time. It took some time but I am slowly regaining my balance and getting some clarity about how to move forward professionally and most importantly, personally. You are a wonderful supervisor. I will hopefully see you around.
Thank you so much for re-initiating and facilitating our group. It is obvious you put a lot of time, engergy, and love into what you do. I so appreciate your wisdom, humor, and willingness to share your vulnerabilities with us.
You are a treasure! Much Love.

Thanks SO very much for your incredible therapeutic insights, clinical brilliance, reflective guidance and so much more over these past couple years. You have been a great gift to me and my loved ones, directly and indirectly. With deep gratitude.
Okay Laurel, here's what I want to tell you...
You helped guide me in the direction that I called for. You've helped me have more compassion for myself. Also, you guided me to listen to my body and my intuition. Our work as also helped me to uncover past trauma that I wasn't consciously aware of. EMDR and coaching have been equally helpful. EMDR helped take the edge off of the past and current trauma. Coaching helped with accessing big life transition. I can't believe it's been 3 years we've worked together. See you on Skype!
