Everyone has the innate ability to accomplish the goals that they set for themselves and to be who they desire. However, sometimes life happens and the goals that once were bright, become dim, but they are never lost. Courtney Watson believes the answers her clients are looking for are inside of them, and through empathic listening, providing insight, and gently challenging clients, she helps her clients to hear their voice, increase self-efficacy and self-awareness, and ultimately be the person they were always striving to be.
