Explore the Many Areas of Life Transition.

Services are designed to help clients explore areas of life transition including encore careers, work-life balance, life meaning, social/family/couple, and physical health. The goal is to provide a safe place to explore dreams and ideas, then transition to specific actionable steps for personal success.
