Experience

My training for this work comes in part through the many different schools, trainings, programs and jobs I have learned from. But primarily it comes from a choice I made years ago to be a student learning from my own life. It is this approach that has yielded me joy, fulfillment, laughter, meaning and success in the face of hardship and loss.
