Hello, I have 13 years of experience in helping people change and improve their experience. I love helping people and I am so grateful to have found this profession. I am encouraged and inspired daily by significant changes and improvements I see with the people I help. My approach is meeting you wherever you are in life and really focusing on gaining an in-depth understanding of you. I want to focus on understanding your experiences, motivations, perspectives, emotions, struggles, and circumstances. I want to know you at the most core level. I believe that process will lead to greater self-awareness and through that self-awareness we can begin to find areas that you have control to change. The changes made will create a different, better experience for you. I understand this concept is simple, but difficult to make happen. So, I will focus on building a collaborative plan and strategy to make it easier and more attainable. We will focus on facing fears, accepting things outside of our control, and gaining intention into where we have control. We will focus on ways of thinking about situations and finding helpful perspectives. We will focus on ways to control behaviors and begin doing more of what we want and less of what we don’t. This will create a better emotional experience, but we will also learn how to manage and tolerate difficult emotional moments. My goal is to create a place where you feel understood, supported, and encouraged. A place where things become clearer, and you feel more confident and in control. A place where you know seeking truth will be a priority because that is the only way to grow and become stronger. I enjoy helping people with any issue they are experiencing, including anxiety of all kinds, depression, addiction, PTSD, trauma, relationships, co-dependency, boundaries, spirituality, motivation, self-esteem, and grief. I am a Christian but have been an atheist and agnostic in the past, so I am very open to all viewpoints and enjoy working with people of any faith or lack thereof. I will adjust to you. I have had a wonderful marriage of 13 years and have always had a passion for understanding what makes a relationship healthy. I have 2 kids, 10 and 6, and have learned much about parenting. I spent a long period of time in the corporate world and worked my way up to director, so I understand and have gained perspective into that world and what it is like to be successful in it and then what it is like to get out of it. If this message speaks to you, contact me today and let’s begin a life changing experience and relationship.
