As a Life Coach who also specializes in ADHD, I want you to know that you are not alone in your journey. I can help you manage and improve on: impulsively, distraction, emotional self-regulation, focus, decision-making, time management, procrastination, self-negative talk, low self-confidence, and anxiety. These challenges can create a negative thought that you can not accomplish your life, family, education, or career goals. As a team, we collaborate to improve your awareness and identify challenges and habits that have stalled your life, career, family, or personal relationship.
I believe that therapy is a sacred space where a client and therapist encounter to make transformative changes as a team. My indescribable joy as a therapist is to witness my clients rise from the misery of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, parenting issues, and troubled relationships. These are my specialties guided by a principle that St. Irenaeus best describes, “a human fully alive is the glory of God.” I help clients connect with their inner potential and resources and build effective coping strategies specific to the personality, lifestyle, and predicament.
My experience includes 12 years of helping people improve and repair their relationships. I also assist with individuals and couples with overcoming anxiety, sadness, fear, isolation, inability to trust or build meaningful relationships. If you are having distresses due to relationships at home, work, with the family or being unable to connect with others, I look forward to the opportunity to be of assistance. Very often, we struggle with sadness, difficulty with life transitions or obstacles in relationships. You are in charge and I will act as a guide, collaborator and help you pursue your dreams.
