About

Throughout life, we face many challenges: sadness, anger, pain, frustration, anxiety and depression, which can lead to feelings of inadequacy, insecurity, fear and doubt. These life challenges, though extremely difficult, are opportunities for breakthrough. Together, we’ll utilize a collaborative, person-centered, solution-based and trauma-informed approach that directly attacks shame, low self-esteem, guilt, worthlessness and hopelessness-And replace them with love, peace, joy, happiness and security.  Together, you and I will unlock your “best self” through consistent non-judgmental exploration, developing self-awareness!
We will explore the depths of your mind, body and spirit. We'll reflect on the roots of your emotions, uncovering and revealing the core beliefs, thoughts and feelings that motivates your behaviors and decision-making. Finally, we will utilize our self-awareness and self-determination to create something beautiful!
The journey we will be embarking on will, no doubt, be a challenging one. Depression. Anxiety. Trauma. These "enemies" have been trying to steal and destroy all that you have. However, through our relationship, you will show these 'forces' that you are bigger, faster and stronger in all ways. And all will know, that it was you who seized your healing!
