"I know you want to feel better. It may seem difficult or impossible, but you absolutely can, and with the right support, you will! If you are here because you are struggling with poor life choices, regret, grief, fear or worry, I want to help you see that your "problem" is actually your solution. Once you learn how to use and make meaning of your particular struggle and feelings, slowly but surely (although sometimes quickly) things fall into place. Understanding your internal Navigational System, your emotional GPS, is exciting and leads to clarity, purpose and a wonderful path forward."
