“I can provide you with coaching and pastoral counseling to help you walk through some of the deeper issues that are too complex to process out in a small group setting. Also I can provide insight and coaching to help you deal with areas in which you feel stuck. Meeting by Skype is a convenient way of giving you extra tools to process your pain.” – Andy Flaherty
