Amid this time of heightened emotions, we have the gift of time to slow down, be still, evaluate our current mental, emotional, physical & spiritual health, resolve issues rooted from past hurts & improve our overall well being. We are in survival mode, adjusting our lives in such a way that it can bring about stress & sadness. It's okay to mourn what you're missing right now, even if it seems minor compared to what others are going through. The mind & emotions uniquely shape a person's worldview & perception of reality.

This ignited a passion within me to use my skills to support women to navigate through the chaos. My goal is to work with those women who may need help coping through these very real everyday stressors. Not a mom? That's ok! I can also empathize with the pressure placed on women of color in the workplace to work so much harder than their male counterparts. ...

However, there are ways to achieve a new perspective and approach to the everyday tasks or interactions which now feel overwhelming. I look to help clients identify, motivate, and generalize new tools that match to their comfort level. ...
