                   verbalizations, reactions, or behavior patterns may be negatively

                   impacting their life experiences, relationships, performance or

                   overall well-being;

          -  Guide individuals through a process of developing new, healthier

                   boundaries, relationships, behaviors, thought patterns and life

                   strategies;

          -  Enhance personal and spiritual growth, help uncover blocks, achieve

                   balance, and assist in outlining choices and decision making;

          -  Help individuals discover meaning, find purpose and identify important

                   life lessons from the problems they have endured.
