My Resume

Qualifications & Work Experience

I facilitate conversations where individual clients or couples get the opportunity to understand why some cycles of effort to get liberated from emotional challenges do not work, and even worse, why their efforts sometimes aggravate the situation. Through a process of committed action clients may become more emotionally aware of their own processes which could enhance intentional living with more meaning despite challenges.
