Intuitive serves as a resource of inspiration to individuals who are failing in school, have low self esteem, have social deficiencies, or may experience trauma outside their families’ value systems. Our goal is to provide these individuals with an additional stable adult figure in their lives. The presence of a caring mentor has been shown to provide support, boost self-esteem, assist in enhancing social skills, and help the customer acquire a greater commitment to academic success.
