About

My passion is to support couples into a more loving and fulfilled relationship. I believe that many couples fall in love and sacrificially give, but unbeknownst to them, lose their way, and take the common path of exhausting themselves by tying to change their partners behaviors; which will never, ever, work! Working with me however, will shift the focus from their partner and place it on themselves. Then, with my guidance, the couples make a strategic plan(s) to do the next right thing(s) in the relationship. Only then will healing begin, and the experience of living in a more loving, trusting, and safe romantic relationship.
My main purpose is to provide a client centered approach, which means meeting couples and clients right where there at. I will always operate to serve my clients and help to find purpose, stability, safety, and clarity. With my many years of experience I can confidently support someone's suffering and guide them into health.
Life is hard, really hard, and many times, relationships within our community, family and friends do not make it easier. Asking for help can make things even harder. But asking for help from the right person may be all you need to move into peace, rest, and hope. Please reach out and continue your healing journey in a new and different way.
