Professional Experience

Personal Mentor

1991 – Present

I guide people to discover increasing clarity, calm, insight and direction in their personal and professional lives.

Astute listening, asking artful questions, and above all harnessing the power of awareness (aka “mindfulness”) are the essence of the mentoring relationship.
