Comments from previous attendees:
“Thank you so much for the very useful and heartfelt presentations.”

“It was extremely beneficial.”

“I attended your recent workshop at LCS. Thank you for the most helpful conversation and information. You help with some rather difficult decisions and actions and do it well - with directness, obvious care for the group, and humor as well. I thought you managed the conversation well, allowing participants to express their appropriate concerns, stories, and questions and skillfully moving away from those unhelpful. I'm 77 and have put this off, not avoiding it, just postponing it. Now, with your help, I'm addressing it. You are providing a very important and well-managed service.”

“I know everyone who took your class is feeling the same way I am — grateful. THANK YOU!”
