The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
Bet was trained to observe, listen, interpret, reflect, and create community. These skills have fit in quite naturally to peoples' needs both in social service and business settings. Using a variety of ways of knowing, thinking, and perceiving, she can draw on peoples' own truth
to stimulate their own discovery and wisdom. Working with people in the path from suffering or mystery to peace and wisdom, from fear to confidence, is a never ending joy.
