    About COR Counseling

    About COR Counseling

    I often compare counseling to chemotherapy. I, and many others, went through chemotherapy because I believed it offered hope for curing my cancer. In a similar vein, counseling offers you hope of a new way of doing life. Are your relationships all you want them to be? Are you able to put words to your feelings? Or do they just seem like a dark mess? Are you feeling powerless and out of control in your world? Counseling may not always feel good — but it is worth it. COR Counseling is a safe place to explore your heart and to learn new ways of living. "Cor" is the Latin word for heart — and your heart matters in this relationally-based practice. Only as you bring to light the treasures of your heart will you know wholehearted living.
