About me

Welcome! And thank you! I love to work with Couples, Families, and individuals who are seeking to overcome barriers in their lives. Some are struggling with: * anger management, * addiction, * Jobs stress, * familial & social relationships issues, * loneliness, * anxiety, * current or past abuse * depression, * poor communication, * relationship issues, * parenting, * Trauma/Traumatic events * poor focus and attention, * low motivation, * veterans support, * VICTIM OF A VIOLENT CRIME (VOC),* and the search for purpose. Often many people are stuck in addictive self-destructive patterns in their lives, which result from an effort to manage their emotional pain.
If you are hurting, stressed, or troubled by your current circumstance and situation and would like to have support, discover new solutions to old patterns, or work together to create more vitality and inner peace in your life, I would be excited to work with you.
My goal is help you discover your purpose, magnify your strength, and learn and implement new practices to overcome life's problems with clarity, confidence, and with the belief that you can handle anything that comes your way. I don't want you to merely survive, I want to thrive!
