As I watched her working throughout the time when she lived with cancer and through chemotherapy treatments I admired her so much. She always had a positive attitude and encouraged the people who came in to see her. She dedicated her time and attention fully. She reminded me of the proverb, “A generous persons will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed (Proverbs 11:25).”

The name ‘Loving Therapy’ comes from an idea I had about how she explained to a child what a therapist is. She said, “A therapist is like a doctor for your heart and your feelings.”

Dr. Cheryl Laird was my first supervisor. I am thankful for her often for all that she taught me and miss her. God bless her family and work.
