New hope for lasting change! I will help you clarify how your life will be different when you have accomplished what you came for. Then we will identify what stops you from forging the path from here to your desired future. Thus, we are launched into identifying and changing the specific thoughts, feelings, behaviors, attitudes, or beliefs what you know - or discover - no longer work for you. I work with the simplest methods first, progressing to more complex strategies as needed. Our exploration illuminates stumbling blocks that need addressing to anchor these changes in your self, life, or relationship.
