Dr. Debra Majewski understands that people experience pain for a variety of reasons. “They lose sight of their worth, and long to be loved and accepted,” she says. “Through counseling, they can share their story and begin their journey toward healing. I teach my students that through the use of kindness, integrity, and love, they become an instrument in helping others discover what they are capable of.
