About

Sometimes things just aren’t working. Some feel emotional or have a hard time connecting with others. Some struggle to make things better but don’t always have an idea of how. These folks want to feel better and be better. They want their relationships to improve. They want to accomplish their life goals. They have the awareness that things are not working out the way they would like but are needing more insight, guidance or coaching to help things flow better. They are looking for somebody to help them to find a better way, to remove obstacles or heal from old emotional wounds. Also get “Living Your Best Self” guide on my website.
I specialize in helping clients to heal the wounds that keep getting triggered, that lead to emotional imbalance and frustration or keep them from reaching their goals. I especially love to work with couples and individuals who are having difficulty getting along or communicating better with their significant other or in other relationships.
Working together, the goal is to help you create more connectedness, improve resilience, and experience more joy. Let me help you to feel better, improve your relationships and have a healthier and more fulfilling life. What emerges is a stronger version of you: one with more confidence that you can make a difference in the world.
