Otten Counseling helps you effectively communicate and find your voice to speak your truth

Communication is the foundation in relationships and spans beyond words. Most experts agree that over 75% of communication is nonverbal. Nonverbal communication includes eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, posture, body language, tone of voice, physical distance, tone of voice, and touch. You may be having trouble expressing or interpreting both verbal and nonverbal communication. Learning how to effectively communicate can drastically change a person's life for the better. Otten Counseling will help you wrap both your verbal and nonverbal communication in a way that can be received by others.

If the answer is yes to any of these questions or if you have a similar challenge, Otten Counseling can help.
