Personal Statement I believe that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made and that God did not make a mistake when he created you. In my opinion everyone experiences struggles in their lives but it is our response to those challenges that determines the overall impact it will have on our lives. Counselors serve as a light to come along side individuals when they feel lost in the darkness of their own lives. Licensing: Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas
