I believe each of us has a unique and important life story. Life presents each of us with many unique challenges each day. One of the most rewarding parts of my life is listening to those life stories and using my abilties to guide people of all ages and backgrounds in their personal and professional journeys .
Life challenges happen, an adolescent that develops issues with food, a medical diagnosis for yourself or a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, death of a loved one including a beloved pet, depression anxiety....
Many times we turn to unhealthy coping skills, as a result of life stressors, anxiety and depression that hits us when we least expect it. My goal is to work with each client as an individual helping you utilize your strengths, learn healthy coping skills and useful tools in managing your stress. You can achieve the personal growth and peace you desire and deserve in your life.
