Are you feeling like you lack motivation? Do you feel sad or angry most of the time? Do you sometimes feel like you've lost your way or your life has been interrupted? If so, you are not alone. We, at Essential Journey understand and are here to support you as you begin your healing. The journey may not be easy, but it will be insightful and life changing. Isn't it time to let the pain go and start your healing? Come on, let's get started! I have extensive experience working with couples, single parents, blended families, divorce, interracial relationships, and emotional trauma.
I specialize in helping heal relationships. Isn't it time for the screaming, fighting and crying to stop? Are these behaviors keeping you disconnected from your loved ones? This can be a sign of unresolved emotional trauma or unacknowledged hurt. Once this is recognized, the healing starts and your true voice is heard.
I use a variety of techniques my clients have found very helpful. They describe feeling safe and free to be themselves when we are in session. Meditation, music, inspirational messaging are a few of the strategies I use to aid those on this journey of life. Let's get started.......one step at a time.
