Connect with Repositioning

Yowsa, getting ready for International travel requires a lot of work. First on my list was to be sure my phone was on the International Travel plan. I called my provider, they wanted me to talk to a robot, it could not answer my questions, so I was put on hold for 31 minutes waiting…

Disconnect With Insurance

Boundaries are Everything

Vanessa came to my office totally exhausted. It seemed as if everything was falling apart in her life. Her mother in law had fallen for the fifth time and refused the proper care provided for her, as she only wanted her 60 year old son to move home and be her caregiver 24/7. Her daughter…
