Email me: [masked] I look forward to meeting you!!! "The day I met Connie at Urth Caffe was a transformative one for me. She shed a bright light on a dark situation I was experiencing and helped me see the bigger picture and realize how much I had to offer. Connie has many tools to help Healers with empowerment, marketing, business strategies and valuing one's work. Empathic natured people tend to sell themselves short and Connie's "Get The Career You Deserve" Group gives the exact tools one needs to turn that around to receive the appropriate monetary exchange for the energy that a Healer puts out in a session. Thank you Connie, for the much needed tools and inspiration!" - Carol K.
