How do you want to change?

Let me help you listen to your own story. Reflect on both your inner and outer life experience. Identify your beliefs and clarify your intentions. Explore choice.

We will agree on a meeting place. I am willing to come to your home if you live in Minneapolis or the western suburbs.

Coaching by phone can be arranged.
