I believe we come into this world with an innate potential for growth. Yet, alongside that possibility, we all face obstacles to our personal and professional development– beliefs that limit our effectiveness, losses or failures that foster self-doubt, even crises that can halt us in our tracks. What makes the difference, I have found in thirty years as an organizational consultant and psychologist, is what we choose to do with those difficulties when they show up in our lives. We are capable of so much more than our limiting stories and past experiences would have us believe.
Please dip into this site—there are resources, stories, and practical suggestions–backed by research, clinical training and years of experience. My goal is to help you as you go through your own journey of facing and moving beyond personal adversity or professional setbacks.
