My clients remain in my thoughts between our appointments together and breaks in our work together because I genuinely without any hidden agenda simply care about them, their lives and their world.
Why? because one person did this for me and changed the direction on my life.
I am here , for them, with them when their internal weather is a tornedo or a sunset, walking side by side with them if they can allow me to share in their world as they experience it.
It can be so hard for them to put themselves as a priority in their own life but - Read More
