Who We Help

Does this sound like you?

·   You don’t have business problems, you have people problems.
·   You expect people to figure it out like you did and can’t understand why they don’t get it.
·   You know what to do, but for some reason you aren’t doing it and don’t know why.
·   You feel heavy, like you are slogging through life. when it should feel much easier.
·   You don’t give yourself a break when you need rest because you feel guilty, like you haven’t “earned” it

The journey to self-mastery is never taken alone.

At Intently, we help you embark on a process of inner reflection and identify transformation to put you on a new path filled with meaningful goals and fulfilling connections for you in your work and life. We’ll guide the work on your own self-awareness in ways that others have not been able to do for you or help you with before. Yes, we know you’ve been able to fool your therapist in the past. It’s a good thing we aren’t therapists, at Intently, we love you and we see you - and we won’t let you do that.
