As beautiful and wonderful as my life is now…This wasn’t always the case. I experienced devastating loss after losing my mother to Cancer at the tender age of 16 and became a mother myself just prior to my 18th birthday. And that's not it, I've lost jobs, money, friendships and went through major disappointment from unmet expectations from people... I lost myself....and I didn't know who I was outside of being a mother, an employee, a college student and a caretaker for several family members. I was emotionally drained, overwhelmed and confused about where my life was going. My personal journey of healing consisted of my faith, personal development books and workshops, therapy, supportive friends, and, later, clinical training in how to effectively process and handle emotional distress. You know those life events that come and threaten your very existence and sanity? My journey led me right into purpose..... My life’s purpose…… is to awaken, inspire, and teach women how to connect with their emotions and build a healthy new relationship with themselves. To awaken you to your potential, inspire you , give you hope and teach you a practical approach to healing from the inside out. My expertise…I received my clinical training from Capella University and earned a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. The most important takeaway from my formal education was the realization that building a trusting and genuine relationship with my clients and meeting them where they are is the best foundation for accelerating the healing process. I utilize a powerful intervention called Internal Family Systems (IFS), in which I am Level 2 trained and pursuing certification. IFS achieves mental wellness by teaching you how to understand the different parts of you and lead from your core inner self.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session together we’ll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you are facing This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in the follow-up session. I will also invite you to ask any questions concerning the process and cover any administrative matters before transitioning into the work.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I help women gain clarity of what is happening within, the confidence to overcome unhealthy patterns and the control to design the life they want. I understand that sometimes the fear of the process can get in the way. So we'll tackle fears and barriers that hinder the growth and healing process and create a personalized action plan for your healing.
