~Anna (Tucson, AZ)

"The best and clearest way to describe her approach is gentle and as organic as possible.  We were able to meet various places which provided a venue that allowed me to reminisce and see more into what I wanted. Ms. Malm coached me into using not only my own perspective but in a way that I could make a paradigm shift in my thinking. Her exercises and homework were easy to follow and allowed me to ask myself questions that I could process quietly."
