I am interested in what enables a person to thrive in this world; how our relationships and experiences shape our personalities, our ways of thinking and behaving; how something said or done will trigger a strong emotion or reaction in one person but not another. I am extremely lucky to make my living through hearing other people's stories, then working together to build their internal resource, reducing distress and increasing capacity to be happy and connected to those with whom we share our lives.
