Do you feeling alone, and like no one cares? I care about you and your well being. I want to help you win against the struggles you are facing. You are capable of more than you think and I want to bring out the best in you. I am confident that i can help you. I want to be a shoulder to lean on emotionally as well as to cry on. I love working with new people, of all differences, and diversities. Given the chance, I would love to serve and care for you in your time of need.

Specific areas of focus are Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, and issues with Self-Esteem. Though these are my main areas of focus, I have knowledge and experience in many other areas related to bad thoughts, negative emotions, past issues, grief, and many more! Better your well being.

I provide a very open and understanding environment to discuss very sensitive topics, without any type of judgement. I offer compassion and acceptance, as well as a knowledge base to help you. I also offer online session, via video chat, or over the phone sessions. Its never too late.
