About

Are you feeling like it's time to better understand what your unsettling feelings are trying to tell you? It could be that these have been present since you were young, or maybe it's an entirely new experience. In either case, I'm glad you found your way here. You deserve to enjoy your days and I will work with you to help you manage any fear or worry by getting to the heart of what is leading you to feel a lack of calm confidence. Maybe you already know the source but simply need to talk about it so that it doesn't have as much control over you. Either way, it's time for a new approach to dealing with this!
Together, you and I will determine what calming skills work best for you to always have on hand. I have dozens of helpful tools that I've learned through clinical trainings as well as my 20 years of working in the holistic health field. I won't force you to talk about what you are not ready to discuss and I can handle hearing what you need to share.
Even though circumstances in your life, and the world, can feel like they are taking you over much of the time, it is important to remember that you deserve to feel peace again and simply enjoy your days as you move through them. If you feel my style may be a good fit for you and would like more information please call or email me for a free consultation.
