About

How long have you ignored your inner voice? How long have you let fear of the unknown get in your way? If your answer is "Too Long" then you have reached the right place. Stop living someone else's life and start living your life the way you dreamed of. Fully express your true self. Live a life where your inside deepest beliefs match how you live on the outside.
My mission is to create a safe, caring and nonjudgmental space for you to strengthen your courage, illuminate the hurdles and boulders, reveal your wisdom, transform your life and get back on your path.
With twenty three years of experience, a Masters in clinical psychotherapy and a board certified Licensed CSW, I have helped thousands of people find their way to an incredible life filled with purpose, love and happiness. Confidential. Experienced and Trustworthy.
