The Inspiration Behind the Name
In creating a visual and spiritual representation of what this counseling practice desires to offer, Two Hearts Counseling draws upon the age-old tradition and devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In the image of the Two Hearts we find not an "idol," but rather a rich symbolism of a profound truth: Never before did there exist two human hearts that have been more intimately acquainted with suffering, yet inflamed with purpose, steadfastly united with the will of God above their own desires. In the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we find a model for how our own hearts long to be - at peace with ourselves, with others and with wherever life finds us at any given moment. We can look at the Two Hearts and take courage, being inspired to make changes in our own lives as we strive for wholeness and holiness!
Believing each individual to have been created by God for a distinctive purpose, Two Hearts Counseling aims to help clients realize their potential to make an unparalleled contribution to the world. If each person were truly able to live an authentic life - in the freedom of who God created them to be - this world would be a different place. Free of burdens, regrets, fears and attachments, we would be able to act upon our gifts and truly "set the world ablaze."
