About

I strive to help people discover their purpose, increase self-awareness, and empower them to be the outstanding individuals they are capable of being. By discarding emotional baggage, often years of hurt, pain, guilt and shame; you can rediscover your purpose, live a more fulfilling life, and regain your natural balance.
With the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I work to help you resolve and better manage issues associated with depression, anxiety, work related stress and relationships. By exploring and addressing the three components of the self: Mind, Body and Spirit; we will work together to help restore balance, meaning and purpose in your life.
Our working relationship is designed to elicit positive change and confront roadblocks that are blocking you from a sense of fulfillment, satisfaction and purpose. I am here to walk with you on this new journey of self discovery and transformation.
