Today was a sad day. My beloved intern, Heather, had her last day and said goodbye to everyone. It was great to look back on our time together, the great relationship we've built, and the lives she's impacted in her time with me. Now she forges on into something new, but she will always leave a lasting impact on all of us. I'm thankful to know her and blessed to have had her here at Discover Counseling...
