Reflective journal writing is a way to direct your own growth, to tap the wisdom within. For 25+ years I’ve helped individuals, families, organizations navigate change.

I combine my passion and skills for innovation, personal growth, and problem-solving to help others tap their own inner wisdom when they need it most.
