The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
Helping people improve communication and self esteem so that their personal relationships would be enjoying and satisfying has always had my attention. I have devoted my adult life to the study of intimate relationships - why they work -- and why they don't. There is so much great information available to help people achieve their hopes for loving and safe relationships. I also benefit personally in my own life from learning and applying what we know works! Teaching individuals and couples skills in a class setting has helped me expand my knowledge, skills and appreciation for the power people have within them to change the lives.
