We believe in order to grow sustainably and intentionally, you must address many aspects of who you are. 


Hey there! We're Tiffany Valvo (clarinet), Ixi Chen (clarinet) and Ted Nelson (cello). We're professional musicians and have played in orchestras, taught at universities, started chamber ensembles, presented at conferences, and the list goes on. We've learned a lot along the way and we want to share it with you. That's why we built all this!

Now about you. All of our resources, programs and work with you are centered on our belief that in order to grow sustainably and intentionally, you must address many aspects of who you are. We are interested in helping you do meaningful work, understand the purpose behind your actions, overcome your fears and embrace the idea that with the right tools and support, a whole heck of a lot is possible. 

This work isn't always comfortable but boy is it worth it.
