Have you experienced a change in your life that you are finding hard to handle? Sometimes life can present challenges which are difficult to overcome or cope with on our own. Having a trusted, caring, and competent individual on your side can help you overcome challenges, cope with unwanted changes, and grow individually. This growth can improve your relationships with self, significant others, family, friends, and in your profession.
I offer you a trusting, caring environment where you can explore your responses to life’s changes, examine who you are in relationship with self and others, and what changes can be created from within to achieve what you desire in life.
I work from an understanding that we are whole unique beings with the capacity to achieve what can be fulfilling in life. Let's work together on exploring and overcoming obstacles that have been placed in your way of finding fulfillment in life.
