I specialize in dealing with CHANGE - whether it is helping people who want to make a change in their lives accomplish that goal, or supporting people who are having difficulty adjusting to a change. Change can be either internal or external, but my goal is to help people become happier with themselves and more fulfilled in their relationships.
