My Approach to Helping

Hello, I'm here to listen to you and meet you where you are. I work with people who struggle with addiction, dating, stress, organization, etc.

Welcome to my wellness practice.

Are you in recovery? Are you overwhelmed with the stressors of life? You're not alone. Welcome! I work with individuals who have issues with stress, dating, overeating, weight, fitness, organization, and addiction recovery. My service is short-term and goal -oriented--2-12 sessions and renewed as needed.

I'm a licensed social worker with 20+ years' experience in schools, the state children and family services, day treatment center, and mental health and wellness clinics. Currently, I offer lifestyle consulting, wellness and recovery coaching, and supportive counseling in a private practice.

I help people live healthier, happier, and wiser with who they are, where they are, what they have, and what they do.

You can create your own healthy lifestyle with simple, practical tips. I offer practical evidence-based suggestions , and clients try them daily to experience positive outcomes.

Good health is a good life. When we know better, we do and live better. Life is hopeful when you see it the following day. You can create the life you want with what you have and who you are, one step at a time. How? You have the right and power to examine the objective truth and do the work to the best of your ability.

Many of us learn from our mistakes and those of others. Then we work with what we have at hand and live better than our former life and that of our parents and grandparents.

You can live better. I believe in hope, myself, people, and everyday miracles. Nothing stays the same. Your situation is subject to improve or change for the better.

I used a strength-based, CBT, and coaching approach in my practice. When individuals know and understand what they are good at and their thought processes, they can approach the area that needs work positively without being so hard on themselves. Call or text now.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

What you want or need most for yourself. What are your core values and beliefs? Who is the most important person in your life? What is one thing you value most in your life? More importantly, how can I help you? And how can you help yourself grow?

What Makes up a Problem?

1. The way people see their problems.
2. What did individuals or groups do or not do about the problem?
3. Being honest about the problem--- Can I do something about it or let it go? For example, you can't change the weather but get an umbrella or a raincoat.
