"You're so easy to talk to" is something I often hear from my clients. I think they say that because I am present and engaged in our conversations. I am truly interested in getting to know my clients. Each story is unique, and solutions require a deep understanding of those individual stories. I listen, closely, and I ask questions that ensure that I am understanding what my clients are saying (or not saying). My clients decide what goals they want to work toward, and together we develop a plan to accomplish those goals. I am committed to fully accepting my...
