Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
What a hard question! My ideal client is someone who is creative, willing to dust off and unpack the boxes that have been in the back of the mind and go through them to sort what can be let go and what really benefits them to save. They want to come in and stretch themselves, exploring what may be a new way of connecting to themselves as well as those around them.

Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain. His candor and love for his profession and the people that came into his life were impactful. It was a bittersweet recent read as I got a glimpse into the life of man who I hope has found peace.
Favorite Movie and Why?
