Change comes from within, but sometimes we need an outside perspective to get a better handle on our challenges. I focus on my clients' strengths, and can help identify those unique skills, talents, inclinations, and interests that will serve them well because we often pay more attention to the forest rather than admire the incredible strengths and powers of the individual trees.
