Chef Steven sits down with his wise friend Amy Alexander, Executive Director of The Refuge Center for Counseling, for a rich conversation about boundaries, pace, self-knowledge, and even what it was like living in an abandoned nightclub among gangs in South Central Los Angeles in her early 20s.

There are SO many interesting stories and practical takeaways in this episode. It’s pure gold, you guys.

The Refuge Center for Counseling opened in December 2005 as the vision of its founders Amy Alexander and Jennifer Gillett. Amy and Jennifer had a strong desire to serve their area of residence —Williamson County, TN —which is recognized for its wealth, oftentimes overshadowing those who are in need. To live among great prosperity and to be in need is often to feel invisible.

The Refuge Center’s mission was clear from the beginning—to offer affordable, professional counseling services in order to empower, educate and support individuals, couples and families in need.
