ATTA DAWAHARE BIO
My commitment to my clients is to provide a healthy and healing relational environment to grow more fully into who they want to be. The framework I hold is very relational. Relationships are the context to which we grow our psyche. We often are solely focused on what our relationships provide for our current or imminent needs. Beneath the surface of the immediate is a deeper development of who we are and how we view ourselves and the world around us. My goal is to increase your awareness of your thought patterns, and ultimately to strengthen your choice and influence over these patterns.
Practically speaking, I help people from all walks of life and world views. My goal is to empower you to be present and confident with who you are and how you interact with others. I help people customize their way of being so that it works better for them.
A.G. WILSON BIO
I enjoy meeting clients who are in a state of upheaval; deconstructing, rebuilding, starting over. I love to see people honestly wrestle with their lives to identify the dynamics which must be used (or discarded) for growth. I work primarily from an existential perspective to help people open doors to fuller and more meaningful lives through exposition and exploration. There are countless events throughout our lives that can launch us into despair & questioning. These also provide opportunities to re-calibrate and grow.
I provide tenderness & directness to coax the best from you in a safe and confidential environment. My focus is centered on allowing clients build a level of confidence which will enable them to live intact and enriched lives.
