Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I am able to see patterns in work and see things from a very different perspective. I am able to focus for long periods with work that is very interesting to me. I constantly learn new information to stay abreast of current trends, gather data, and see different perspectives. I am naturally empathetic and a good listener. I have been a therapist for many years and have studied human behavior for some time. I can work alone (and prefer that mostly), but also assimilate and work well with others.
