Jacqueline Dawes and the entire Brookhaven staff massaged my heart back to loving life and most importantly, showed me how to love myself again.
I can say that after a two-month stay in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee I can now allow others to love me. Through self-discovery and free will I have learned how to love myself first.
I have been an overachiever all my life. I was aware I had trauma from my childhood and at age twenty-seven I sought therapy. I believed I had addressed my past traumas. When my life became unmanageable in both my business career and my roles of wife and mother I knew it was time for me to remove myself from my environment. I needed time to focus on my internal turmoil. The key to my success was taking a break from my daily stressors and the feelings that surrounded them. By removing myself and entering Brookhaven program allowed my heart to heal.
From the moment I walked in the door the entire Brookhaven staff greeted me with loving arms. Without Brookhaven I would have lost my marriage and family. I now have a solid foundation of coping tools and I can walk back in my environment and hold my head up! Brookhaven gives you the full package of life skills. The skills you learn are skills that must be used daily to say healthy both physically and mentally. The Brookhaven program focuses on community skills, individual skills, and top-notch professional care. I want to thank the entire staff for believing in me and giving me my truth back.
I want to have special thanks to my therapist Angela. She truly made a breakthrough with me. I look forward to passing on the gifts she gave me to others.
