I invite you to meet with me for an introductory meeting. I will ask you to explain what is happening and what conditions you are now facing. Knowing this, I will be able to explain how I might best be able to help you and discuss what services as an iRNPA I can provide that would be most advantageous for you. My goal is to empower you to be your own advocate.
