Marie Celeste, MS LMFT Licensed Marraige and Family Therapist
Connecting Within, LLCCounseling for Indiviuals, Couples, Children and Families
After being a teacher for 21 years, I realized one day that my favorite part of being in the classroom wasn’t about teaching math, it was about connecting with people. I enjoyed helping the families, and children I taught, create goals that were more true to themselves and follow what their heart was guiding them toward. What I found out was that many times the woundedness of our life experiences often gets in the way of our visions, and our authentic selves become lost. I find the work I do to be a great privilege, and have much gratitude for being able to witness the journey of others as they become reunited with their own wisdom, vulnerabilities and authenticity.
