In my twenty plus years of teaching, mentoring and counseling youth and adults, I have covered a variety of topics to assist in life transformation. Thus, here at Analogy7, we don’t adhere to lecturing, but to a co-creating, mutual, learning method that motivates our clients to think and make educated decisions for themselves. We mentor both individuals and groups based on the below diverse topics (each of which can be modified when coaching and counseling middle, secondary, and college age youth). If your particular need is not included in the below topics, we can also create topics and pedagogy to address your particular need.
