"relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident, emotionally neutral, loose, and free-floating - these are the keys to successful performance in almost everything."

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer


Chantale, you are so warm and caring that everyone feels completely comfortable sharing with you. You are non-judgmental, understanding, and know when to push and when to back down. You are amazing! We love you! I think that about says it. You truly are an extraordinary person who helps bring out the best in others. I am extremely grateful for this experience. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through without it. It is through your guidance that I know and believe in myself as an artist. It is through the skills, strategies, books, that you have taught/given me that even though I am nervous for my future, I can't wait to explore!
