Creating a safe and healing atmosphere, as together, we explore and resolve challenges that are holding you back from living a life of meaning and purpose.
Through my own personal experiences, I understand that 'life happens' and sometimes feelings of hopelessness are overwhelming. I offer support and encouragement to individuals as they overcome obstacles that may be creating a sense of brokenness. I offer effective tools and journey with you, as you find the answers within yourself. As you come to a place of healing and transformation, you will choose to boldly take steps toward a new future with courage, inner strength and hope.
"Strength doesn't come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't do."
Connection is a vital part of human well-being and I promote connection with each individual through heartfelt and meaningful conversation. I believe that authenticity is the door to connection, and healing takes place when hearts connect. Through warmth, care, genuineness and acceptance, I invite others to discover and find awareness, creating a new story for themselves.
Through personal experiences I have gained valuable insight that has provided me with awareness, passion and an understanding that it takes stepping outside of the comfort zone with courage to discover our hidden potential and strengths.
Wisdom and knowledge are gained through ongoing learning and I continue to engage in training and supervision so I can provide each individual with the best care that I can give.

My 'happy place' is in nature, hiking, waterfall exploring, strolling beside a stream, enjoying sunshine on a beach with my toes dug in the sand, or just finding a quiet hilltop to rest and enjoy the view. Being in nature is my calm, my grounding place. It is where I feel at peace with God, myself and the world around me. I believe that nature has a way of calming and healing the soul.
I offer an Integrative Approach that draws from theories and techniques that will promote healing from past trauma and hurt, while exploring and identifying obstacles and roadblocks that may be hindering an individual from making positive change and reaching personal goals.
Childhood experiences, relationships and family systems affect who we are today. Together we will explore core beliefs, gain understanding of your challenges, establish goals and create a plan that is unique to you. You are the expert of your story, of your life experiences.
You will uncover hidden potential and strengths to live a life with hope, courage and purpose.
