It’s never too late to start creating the life you want. So if you are at a crossroads with your relationship, deciding whether to stay or go. Your job is dull and unfulfilling. You may be feeling sluggish with low self-esteem or have feelings of anxiety, please contact me so we can begin to sort all of this out to get your life back on track. Let’s talk about your past and see if we can make connections to your current life. I use cognitive behavior therapy, which means we will work on changing the way you think so you can feel better about yourself as well as acceptance and commitment therapy. Sometimes we have to accept the thoughts we have, the life experiences, even if they are negative, and make a commitment to ourselves to move forward to create the life we want.
My experience is working with women who have struggled with life transitions, depression, anxiety, trauma and domestic violence. It was through this work that I began to love helping women find empowerment, healthy boundaries, and ultimately work towards creating healthier and happier lives for themselves.
I've practiced counseling in a private setting as well as a non-profit agency treating such issues as depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, trauma and domestic violence. Volunteering and working for three years as an adult advocate assisting clients in obtaining restraining orders, allowed me to become familiar with the judicial system.
About me: I enjoy listening to podcasts of any thing positive and motivating. Yarn is an expensive passion but I can't get enough. Knitting and crochet are pastimes that calm me while I'm being creative. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. If you ask anyone who knows me if I love animals........the answer will always be YES!!!!!
