My ideal client is one who is struggling through an issue and is serious about making significant improvements through hard work. I am aware that life events manifest in many, and often unexpected, ways; Sometimes, the manifestations are changes in personality, mood, relationships, employment, health, and/or the development of various dependencies. I enjoy helping people navigate the stormy seas of trauma, because once the dark skies have cleared, it is truly a joyous day!
