I have over twenty years of experience as a Social Worker/counselor and most recently training as a Holistic Life Coach. The main reason I became a Social Worker/Life Coach was my passion/ compassion to helping people of all ages and in all walks of life. I pride myself on the opportunities that I have had in my professional career! I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have worked with folks from ages 1 to 101! My specialty has been in working with families and relationship issues, but my years of experience have brought me great insight and knowledge in spcialized areas such as teen pregnancy, addictions, mental health problems , suicide prevention and intervention.
My main focus is, and always has been, on balance. It has been my experience that people who are dealing with difficulties usually have an imbalance somewhere in what I call their “mainframe”. This would consist of their Mind, Body and/or Spirit. If we are out of balence in any one or all of these areas, it can impact our ability to think clearly and make good choices in life.
My approach is non-judgmental and empathetic. My goal is to help you become the best you. My hope is that I can help you to see that our most difficult times bring the best opportunity for growth. I believe it is with these challenges we gain lifelong and life changing wisdom; if we take the time to see it.
Let me help you to see how these “life Lessons” can bring you closer to your true self and put you on the right path towards your souls purpose here on earth.
