“Life is full of many hills and valleys that we must all pass through and sometimes we need someone to walk beside us as we trudge through the valleys. In my own life, I have accumulated many life experiences which shape my approach to my work and allow me to provide the support, guidance, and counseling needed by clients in a variety of situations. My life experiences, as well as my work and volunteer experiences, have created in me a strong desire to support individuals and families who often must overcome seemingly insurmountable predicaments. It is both my honor and privilege to offer support and assistance to my clients.” –Dr. Lonnie Penrod
