For many of us, childhood experiences  manifest into adulthood where we experience disrupted and unhelpful thoughts and repeated sabotaging behaviors causing undue stress and limits our potential.

 

Peer counseling puts me in a unique position to develop a relationship of trust, which is especially helpful in working with people in trauma recovery.

 

Sharing through lived experiences can provide a deeper understanding, along with a breathe of personalized approaches to assist in designing and supporting your new life desires.

 

My goal is to help you find healthy ways to feel better and reach your potential.

 

  • To move from hopelessness to hope.

 

  • To find your essence, to find your voice.

 

  • To erase those self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that don’t serve your well-being.

 

  • I will meet you where you are and work to find effective ways to address your concerns.

 

  • I also believe that you should experience real value, enjoyment, relief, curiosity, acceptance,  in the moment, even if things are painful or get worse before getting better.

 

  • Let your story emerge.

 

  • Gain greater vision and  greater focus.

What I treat ~ The good, the bad and the ugly:

Bad moods, too many moods, low moods

Life Stressors

Co-Parenting, family court and custody battles

The fact is all can become lost
and confused in this world,
some just drift farther.
But if we have another to journey with,
it lessens the struggle,
and maybe together we will find our way.
