About Brett


My approach is responsive to and respectful of the unique qualities of each individual or group. I listen from a perspective informed by psychoanalytic psychotherapy, organizational development, and group dynamics.  My personal, insightful, practical, and supportive style is grounded in my own life experience and in my years of helping others grow and achieve their potential.
