Sometimes the challenges we experience in life gets in the way of our personal growth. As a Therapist, a Mother and someone who has gone through many life experiences, I will help you to identify constructive ways to move through your life challenges and recognize them as opportunities to grow yourself and update ineffective and outdated coping styles. I am an experienced Therapist who have enjoyed helping others to work through their personal and relational issues for over 15 years. I remind all my clients that they are in charge of their own happiness. Call me.

More Info About My Practice

Over the past 15 years of working with families and individuals struggling with serious life issues I have developed a unique way of helping my clients connect with their issues in a realistic way. Life brings us challenges that are intended to help us polish who we are. These challenges are not meant to destroy us and if you can gain that understanding you will become the glorious you, you were meant to be.

My Role as a Therapist

I call myself the activator, my role as your therapist is to bring out in you what is already there. You are wired by creation to be magnificent. Life gets in the way of that magnificence; be it childhood issues, biological challenges, life experiences, etc. The great thing is it is all fixable, because most of how we respond to these life challenges is learned and therefore can be unlearned. My role as therapist is to help you unlearn those coping strategies that are not working for you.
