In the last three weeks, the south/southeast part of the US has unwillingly been subjected to the “collusion” of two deadly storms.

I applaud their willingness and trust in me as a practitioner to help them through things that they have been struggling with. It has been a learning experience for me as well, as I have often heard the comment “You knew things that you didn’t have any previous knowledge of”.
