Who We Are

What fully engaged means to me:

Being "fully engaged" is not a static term, it is a process. It means focusing on a client's situation; assessing the problems, obstacles and opportunities; and bringing my experience and resources to bear until the client's situation is resolved. It also means staying engaged to help the client explore new solutions to that situation and avoid similar problems in the future.
