So.. Why Blue Butterfly?
"The symbolism of the butterfly is, in itself, so beautiful for counseling work. The idea of transformation, of leaving the old behind and becoming the new, while still being you. The freeing thought of 'taking flight.' So why then use a particular type of butterfly? Well that reason is much more personal. Blue butterflies in particular you see have always shown up at pivotal points in my life. Anywhere from blue butterflies showing up around loved ones who have passed and on hikes where crucial life decisions were being made, to a giant blue butterfly being painted on the wall of my first counseling job (wasn't sure about taking the job till I saw it! Seriously!) Blue butterflies have shown up in the most important and spiritual times in my life, how could I not take that with me into my private practice? And thus, Blue Butterfly Counseling came to be. Thanks for asking!" -Amy
