Facilitators of Positive Change
The course of our lives is full of challenges, twists, and turns, some of which bring a welcome change while others may hinder our happiness. At times, we may even get lost along the way and require guidance to find our way back. Our ongoing struggle with life's journey shows the resilience of the human heart, body, and soul; however, sometimes we must admit that we cannot always reach our destination alone.
When you long for a life to be different, Irene Giessl, EdD, and Barbara Hensley, EdD, at the Cincinnati Trauma Connection can help you build on your own strengths. They offer insightful, focused solutions for individuals, couples, and families.

● Panic ● Personal Growth ● Phobias ● PTSD ● Relationship Conflicts ● Sexual Abuse ● Stress Management ● Women's Issues
