I see my role in the therapeutic alliance as primarily a heartlifter—an artisan of the heart—who wisely and carefully provides a nurturing presence and grace-filled space for hearts to heal. You see, getting to the heart of the matter isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes care, courage, connection, and creativity. That’s why I’m here. That’s why Heartlift Central is here. Let’s grow together.
