The White Eagle
A Crucial Early Mistake
Theresa shares a very personal story about her own experience with trauma and the lessons she’s learned and continues to learn.
The connection with the relationships I’m building keeps me going! I enjoy the fact that I can show people that they can get better.
Find someone who is doing what you want to do, practicing the way you want to practice, and working with the individuals you’d like to worth. Then go work with them.
