"I've known Carolyn through a spiritual community for about 20 years and have had the wisdom of her drive, insight, integrity, truth-speaking, humor and intelligence. When I was given the opportunity to buy a business with another acupuncturist I knew that engaging Carolyn's partnership could create a lot of ease and perspective with the complex dialogue, negotiations, power struggles, vision and contractual details. Her presence, deep listening and reflection did just that and served not only myself but everyone involved in the process. Now that I'm moving ahead with the business I have the confidence of knowing that I can always re-engage Carolyn if I need to and that gives me great comfort!"
