About Kathy Tetu

My business is about people, helping people to deal with challenges, to understand themselves and their responses to others they work and have relationships with. We are all different and at the same time we all want similar things. My goal is to give my clients the opportunity to make their working and family lives as harmonious and fulfilling as possible. I enjoy my work enormously.—Kathy Tetu
