Here is more about Kristi and Cassie in their own words:
Kristi: I love working with people, especially women and children who have been traumatized. I want to offer them hope and healing, and a chance to be whole again. I believe that even just a glimmer of hope can change someone’s life! I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to work with Dr. Steffens and learn from her expertise. She has the reputation of providing that hope and chance of healing for her clients, and I feel that I will learn a lot from her. I am excited to get to be a part of that change!
Cassie: I am grateful for this opportunity to work with Dr. Barb Steffens of Safe Passages Counseling. I am most passionate about helping victims of abuse and trauma. I have had the pleasure of working alongside Rebecca Born and Rachel Davis of Connections: A Safe Place offering individual and group courses in Restoring One’s Authentic Identity and providing education and mentoring to women of all ages. I also enjoy helping couples and parents to strengthen marriage and family connections. I look forward to serving you and your family!
