"Today you are one step closer to a better you - where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. I believe that each of us has the answers within ourselves to work out our own life solutions. A Therapist or a Life Coach provides the environment and opportunity where you can develop and gain tools of healing and empowerment - creating a life made whole and dreams come true."
As a Counselor, I offer compassion, understanding, and hope through the most trying times of your life. I also provide the encouragement and support you need to discover your best solutions and stop giving your power over to others in your life. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand, reconcile with and resolve challenges in your life.
By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back. I will help you put this new knowledge into action to create true self-empowerment.
As a Life Coach, I believe in the premise that all people are capable, whole and transformative. With this as my foundation, I’ll help you find focus, take action and gain momentum to pursue your goals and make grounded transitions. I will become your partner in building the life you are seeking. As the saying goes “a goal without a plan is just a wish.” I present coaching strategies that allow you to create a plan of action that is not a cookie cutter model, but instead works within your personal values and works with your unique strengths.
Coaching can provide the setting for learning to connect with your authentic self, pursue growth and fulfillment in your life, ignite strong self discipline and motivation, unleash personal empowerment to remove limiting obstacles, pursue and obtain personal and career goals, or make transitions with more certainty and confidence."With 20 years of experience as a Therapist and Life Coach, I have helped guide many people along their personal journeys to create more manageable and fulfilling lives for themselves. My goal is to assist every client in becoming their own Therapist or Life Coach, developing tools that will last a lifetime. Together, we will discover solutions, so you can move forward -- better than before."
