Ever wonder if there’s something about you that attracts people who take advantage of you? Do you find yourself caring for others only to find that when you need help or support, you feel hardly anyone cares or, worse yet, alone and abandoned? Do you feel your voice is unheard, even when surrounded by people you love and feel loved by? We are all in constant transition; our worries preventing us from living up to our full potential as we navigate these twists and turns. Each person’s traumatic experience is unique to themselves, and I believe the treatment of the trauma should be as well.

Have you ever felt “stuck” in your life and not sure how to move forward to make positive changes? I strongly believe that when we cannot make changes to our situation, we need to make changes to our thinking and perception, which requires exploration and support. When we can make changes to our situation, it can be risky and scary and best done with plenty of planning and validation. I am passionate about helping people make these “shifts” in perception and situation.
