"I work with people who are feeling off track or stuck and ready to make a change. Sometimes patterns keep repeating themselves and it's not clear why or habits become hard to change. If circumstances have you feeling troubled or confused, or your relationships have become a source of frustration or distress, what and how to change may not come easy. I help people sort out what no longer works and find the way forward."
