Hi, my name is Julian. Allow me to briefly introduce myself (more technical version below). In brief, I'm a highly experienced professional with hopes of sharing what I believe works best based on my training, education, and experience with thousands of previous clients! In doing so, I attempt to understand your identified concerns as accurately as possible, then help to decipher what's contributing to these issues and work with you to alleviate them. In essence, I'm like a "hybrid" professional, one who can speakeasy or technically, using a light-hearted albeit positive approach that aligns with your best interests and desired goals.
