"If you are someone who wants to engage in a journey of self improvement and feels stuck in their current life situation you are not alone. I work with people who want to live a different version of their life but may feel there is no way out. Sometimes people's self-esteem get knocked down along the way. It is often hard to do this alone and you may only need some guidance or motivation to help and sometimes you need more assistance and insight. I believe everyone has the answer inside of them and they are the experts of themselves. I will facilitate change with you, not for you. You are stronger than you know. "

"Are you having difficulty in your relationships and wondering, "how do I make things better?" Are you experiencing a loss of self, feeling confused and/or depressed? Is it difficult to identify your feelings? Have your feelings become too painful to experience on your own? It is only natural to want to avoid feelings that are painful. It is our basic human instinct to avoid anything that is painful especially emotional pain. Unfortunately, avoiding pain results in maladaptive behavior and difficulties within relationships. Avoiding feelings can result in feeling numb and/or loss of self."
