In a safe and supportive environment, I can help you heal emotional wounds and experience more of the joy life has to offer.  Our work together can open the door to personal growth, self-discovery, and healing.

My commitment lies in supporting you as you face life’s challenges, empowering you to step through the barriers of your trauma, depression and fear as you learn to make healthy choices for positive change in your life.

It is possible to rewire the brain for joy, to change the negative, self-defeating messages stored in our subconscious that create barriers to our happiness.  We have been given everything we need to be happy now, but our fear gets in the way.  We can let go of fear and regain inner peace and balance, becoming strong enough to face beliefs that no longer serve us.
