Personal Growth

This personal growth group addresses issues that block progress in work, relationships, self-esteem and other areas. Members bond with the group, establish goals, work at their own pace and use the group and the leader to resolve issues and complete goals. This is an ongoing group that has produced indredible results due to its safe nature and skill level of the leader as well as the healing power of the members. Only those interested in cooperating with and helping others members and being helped can become a member. This group is special to me and I value it greatly.
