Message to clients

Sometimes life reaches a point where you need to talk to someone. But it is hard to find a place to speak without censor. My job is to provide exactly that room for saying what's on your mind. This way, the space will populate with your interior world and the life of a mind. Passions, both joyful and sad, are welcome without qualification. Together, we will make sense of things such that you can resume your journey, sans inhibition. The process will sort the inheritance of what we did not choose from the things that we can determine.

Daily we encounter forces that attempt to reduce us to nothing. This experience is isolating in worst way, but you are not alone in this. Please feel free to write or call me to discuss our work together.
