Personal statement

No matter where you are, I invite you to walk with me as a spiritual guide through this process rather than alone. And I mean this literally and figuratively. I love to walk and have found that we often think more clearly while walking.

Having said this, I am available for an actual walk-and-talk somewhere safe, or a conversation in a fixed setting or over video conference. As your guide, I will take the time to survey our surroundings and where we are in this journey together. The next steps are up to you, but I will take them with you.
