Working with families to transition from one stage of life to another is something I really love. Usually when I meet clients, they are undertaking the scary task of dealing with their eventual death or disability, or they’ve just lost a loved one, or they’re in a conflict with someone. I want them to rely upon me and leave that burden here. I hope they walk out feeling as though a weight has been lifted off their shoulders.
