“Dear Eva, it has been almost a year since our last session. I am sending this message from hospital and next to me there is our new born daughter. I have already told her that she got one co-parent , meaning you! Without your tremendous help, guidance, and smart tactics this miracle would not be possible. We would love to stop by in your office to introduce you our little Jane and invite you to her Christening ceremony.”
“Eva, you helped me to get over the death of my mom and held me all the time when I was refusing and hating my dad, blaming him for her death. You know what? He is the best dad ever and I would not find out without your patient guidance and support during the toughest moments in my life.”
“Dear Eva, when we first met I was a loud, angry man who was not able to speak for himself and keep his job. I felt dumb, ugly, and helpless. With you I learned to be proud of myself, express my opinions such a way that is not offending anyone. I was promoted and I love my job. Also I have a girlfriend who I love and she loves me, first time in my life! Eva, we cannot thank you enough!”
“Eva, thank you for all your involvement with the LGBTQ Center.”
“We felt accepted, we felt understood, and we got a wonderful chance to grow. We are so incredibly blessed and lucky that we got the opportunity to work with you ,you helped us to safe our marriage. You had a way to involve each of us in helping to understand the other person’s perspective and culture identity. You made us work hard on it and it paid off! We thought there is no hope for us. However with you we found otherwise!"
Children and their messages are unique in every respect. First, their messages and notes for me might look like a drawing of their family, drawing of themselves, something they dream about, or they like to do. Notes from children also look like "a message for Eva" about what their smile is doing, invitation to their birthday party, or a menu card of a restaurant they dream about and plan to open one day... Messages, notes, and letters from children belong to my treasure tank...
Dear Eva, our house has become home again. We enjoy being together, meaning all of us. My step-daughter fortunately got over the complicated relationship with her biological father and is able to accept the care and love we are giving her. The whole family gave me a mandate to thank you. Thank you so much, you are always welcome to our home!
“Dear Eva, you changed our lives and opened new perspectives of our relationship. I went through an incredible challenge with you and thank to that I live with my girlfriend and her son in a happy and fully satisfying relationship! Your therapy changed our lives completely. And sex………. is great! Eva, I hope you do not mind if I refer to you a friend of mine who has some issues...”
