Letters of Reference from preseent or past board members:

Father Bill Comerford - now Director of Service for the Charismatic Service Team of Ontario -  is a member of the Redemptorist Community.  He writes: "I recommend George as a counsellor. He is a wise man with much experience. God Bless, Bill."

Ann DeCasseres writes: I have known George Hartwell since 1997 and experienced and observed him in many facets and arenas, as co-members of a congregation, as a client and as a participant of his mentoring program and retreats.

My direct experience has been that George is an authentic, principled, caring and gentle professional who is spirit-led and walks in love. He actively and consistently demonstrates respect for the integrity of the individual, while offering wise, prudent, pertinent and challenging counsel for the situation at hand. He is trustworthy, maintains confidentiality and willing sows his time, gifts and talents into the lives of others.

By demonstrating unconditional love, freedom from legalism and practicing effective listening and communication skills, George creates a supportive and conducive environment for clients to grow into all they were created and designed to be.

It has been said "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and the Christian family can excel together to accomplish God's will where there is ongoing encouragement and support for the body."*  In my estimation George functions as a "balcony" person - delivering ongoing encouragement and support to those he encounters and  / or serves in a professional capacity. He exemplifies  "I encourage and edify. I never tear down or destroy" and consistently makes a tangible contribution to expanding the Kingdom.

Accountability Reports

These are reports from an outside person who interviews one of my clients for accountability purposes

From an individual retreat at Mount Alverno Retreat Center, Brother David Connolly did an interview for quality control"

"During that conversation she stated or affirmed the following: she felt very comfortable in the environment (Clare's Place) and safe in your presence.  You were very attentive and a good listener. She felt heard and understood.  You were kind and very intelligent and clear in your communication.  With your assistance Ann was able to gain insights, self-understanding and better self-acceptance.

She appreciated the prayer focus of your encounters which gave her a different (and liberating) perspective of her own experience and her experience of God. Healing occurred.  She would very much like to continue therapy with you and would not hesitate to recommend you to others. 

I hope this is helpful. Blessings on your continuing work and ministry.

Bro. David
