Eric is a gem. As a mentor, Eric has an amazing ability to push me, ask probing questions, and challenge me, while making me feel supported at the same time. His genuine curiosity ignites curiosity within myself. Eric himself is constantly learning, which provides a strong model that also motivates his mentees to continue learning. Every time we had a conversation during the time he was mentoring me, I came away with a deeper sense of myself, and what I was looking for. I would be ready to talk about something basic, and Eric always amazed me with his insightful, gently probing questions. Eric has a true gift, and I feel truly fortunate to have had to opportunity to study with him.
