"personable and professional..."
Sometimes we need fresh perspective to sort out how a personal or professional “renovatio” may offer relief, renewal or a plain old personal or professional reset.
The Renovatio Wellness Institute, Inc. was founded with a conviction that we are all in process. I firmly believe that seasons of our lives, even and especially the rough ones, can be capitalized for growth. My approach is committed to the belief that fostering well-being includes paying attention to all parts of self: physical, psychological, emotional, relational and spiritual. I use research supported theories and interventions with a compassionate, collaborative, genuine approach.
