There’s a tradition in the craft brewing business involving the transition between brew masters.

She says that allowing yourself to confront the more emotionally laden times of your life is a very difficult task. That’s why she has launched her new mental health counseling center in St. Joseph.<br /> <br /> Angela’s new Connection Counseling Center at 609 Market Street is based on Angela’s belief that through the power of a trusting and compassionate relationship, a person can grow and flourish in ways previously never considered possible. Shuey is a Licensed Professional Clinical Mental Health Counselor who has worked at a variety of treatment centers in and around Chicago for the past six years. She tells me that she is delighted to be able to provide services to the people of Michigan’s Great Southwest. She says that exploring the more difficult aspects of one’s life in a safe and trusting environment, while learning how to cope in healthy ways, is the key to letting go of the past and becoming confident and grateful for life in the present. Angela’s approach is based on her warmth and understanding as a practitioner. She works to increase insight through a human-centered approach, incorporating several theories into her practice including Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Feminist Therapy, and Psychodynamic Theories. She works with adult individuals, couples and families, specializing in the areas of trauma and abuse, eating disorders, substance abuse, mood and anxiety issues, and personality disorders. She strives to tailor the treatment to each unique client, and understands the importance of validation, providing a safe place for clients to feel understood and appreciated. She is LGTBQ1 affirmative. Angela received her Masters in Community Counseling from Roosevelt University in Chicago. The office of Connection Counseling Center is located at 609 Market Street in St. Joseph and can be reached by phone at 269-921-6953 or by email at angelashuey@gmail.com.

Allow me to introduce you to the new Yia Yia’s Table...a breakfast & brunch diner just off of the corner of Red Arrow Highway and Glenlord Road in Stevensville. Long-time residents may also recognize the building as the former Nick’s Restaurant and before that Red, Hot & Rare from days gone by. New signage for the building is on the way, but don’t let that stop you from swinging by for a good hot meal in this crazy cold weather. The diner, located at 4132 Red Arrow Highway is now open again under the ownership of the Gellis family, who have owned the real estate for a number of years and had been leasing to the operators of Augustino’s for the last couple of years. Nicholas Gellis and his family owned and operated Nicholson’s in Southtown St. Joseph for more than 18 years before moving back to Illinois for about five years. When they came back to town, the family opened Nick’s and eventually leased the property to the people who ran Augustino’s until last month. Yia Yia’s Table is open 7-days a week from 7am until 3pm featuring breakfast and brunch and billing themselves as the home of the $4.99 Lunch. The number for the restaurant is 269-408-0500. Welcome back, Nick...and best of luck with Yia Yia’s Table.<br /> <br /> What do former President’s George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have in common with Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, Bill Rancic and St. Joseph’s Dr. Gyl Kasewurm? They all recently shared the speaker’s podium at one of the most respected educational expositions in all of Las Vegas. All addressed more than 3,400 hearing professionals at the 2014 Hearing Innovation Expo at The Cosmopolitan on the Las Vegas Strip. I’ve shared with you stories before about Dr. Kasewurm’s incredible standing among industry professionals, but even I was amazed at the star-studded line up that she just returned from in the desert sun. The four day educational foray showcasing new technology, patient experiences and business strategies was sponsored by Starkey Hearing Technologies. Gyl took her staff with her on the trip where keynote speakers included former Presidents and Fortune 20 company CEOs, best-selling authors, world-class motivational speakers, and (as in Gyl’s case) the hearing industry’s most respected thought leaders. One of the highlights of the meeting was information on new hearing aids that are compatible with iPhones, iPads, and any other iProducts. The new technology allows hearing aid wearers to sync their aids to iPhones, enabling them to fully customize their hearing to the environments that they frequent most often. The expo provided a small glimpse into the revolutionary technology available in early spring. Donald Trump shared insights on success in the business world and discussed the role that passion plays in success. President Bill Clinton wrapped up day two with an inspirational message on global cooperation and the empowerment of people. President Bush provided a dynamic end to the expo by sharing his insights into topics from leadership and parenting, to dealing with crisis and his post-presidency charitable work in Africa. Like President Clinton, who has traveled on several mission trips with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to provide hearing aids to those in need around the world, Dr. Kasewurm supports the Foundation by donating a part of every hearing aid sold to the cause. She too, has participated in a mission trip to Peru where she helped fit over 2,000 children and adults with hearing aids. As a renowned leader in the field of audiology, Dr. Kasewurm was a highly sought after presenter and resource at the expo.<br /> <br /> Valentine’s Day this year will likely be a memorable one for members of the St. Joseph High School band and orchestra. It could prove to be a great night on the town for you, as well. Internationally acclaimed guitarist Bryan Lubeck will team up with the band and orchestra Valentine’s evening, Friday, February 14th, for an exceptional evening of entertainment at the St. Joseph High School Student Center. Most folks across the region recognize Bryan as one of the top guitarists in his genre, especially in light of the fact that his latest CD has spent 15 weeks in the Top 40 on the Smooth Jazz charts. The special evening is a fundraiser in support of the SJHS boys’ tennis & golf program and the band and orchestra trip to California. Bryan’s son is a member of the golf and tennis teams, so Mr. Lubeck has graciously donated his time to support those programs, and is collaborating with the band and orchestra to give them a wonderful opportunity to perform with professional musicians. He will also present clinics at the school for the student musicians on February 11th in preparation for their June trip to Los Angeles & San Francisco. The Valentine’s affair includes a romantic concert, desserts and a silent auction. Tickets for the show are $25 dollars in advance or $20 dollars for students and seniors. Price at the door rises to $30 per ticket. You can request tickets by email at SJHSConcert@gmail.com or by calling 269-429-2306.<br /> <br /> That’s it for this week, kids. Have a great weekend, and I hope to see you sometime during the 10th Annual Magical Ice Fest in downtown St. Joseph. Remember to Shop Local for your Valentine…and we’ll see you next Saturday right here in MailMax…and online 24 hours a day at www.MoodyOnTheMarket.com.<br /> <br /> Pat Moody<br /> Morning Radio Personality<br /> WSJM Radio<br /> moody@wsjm.com<br /> (269) 925-1111
