After staying home with my children for nearly 13 years, I decided to return to school to fulfill my calling, helping people and ultimately becoming a counselor. I had always been told by my friends and family that I was a good listener but thought I was much better suited to do something in the legal field, and boy did God have other plans for me!

On my journey to becoming a counselor, I have learned so much about myself and, who I want to be. I learned what legacy I wanted to create for my children. I learned that I want to work towards each day, being a great lover of God, a great wife, a great mother, a great daughter, a great sister, a great friend and a great person! And with God's love and strength I know I can be every one of those.

As I sat down to write this "About Me" segment, I asked myself what I wanted my potential clients and even past clients to know about me? I want you to know that I am a real person. I am a direct person, and I am a person who is willing to help. I love listening to people, I love talking to people, I love being that safe place for people to share. As a matter of fact, I consider it an honor of the highest proportion when a client chooses me for this important position in their life.

When people ask me why I want to be a counselor, the answers are ever-changing: I like working with people, I like helping others, I want to make a difference in a person’s life and there is a need for more counselors in the world. While all of these answers are true for me, the main reason is that I know what it feels like when you have no one to talk to about the challenges you are facing. Fortunately, I have found people in my life who I can be honest and vulnerable with, that support me as I work through life’s challenges. I want to work with your child and create a space where they can also be honest and vulnerable.
 

In my substantial background working with children and adolescents, I have found that usually, all they want is for someone to listen to them with a level of understanding, empathy, honesty, and humor. Working with children and adolescents is highly rewarding. I have a genuine soft spot for them and relating to them is easy because sometimes I can be a big kid myself! Working with your

child is a responsibility I do not take lightly, but with plenty of heart.

In the midst of a crisis, do you need a change? Only you're not sure what type of change you need, is it a career change, is it a relationship change or is it an overall lifestyle change?

 

If this IS where you are then you must be asking yourself, so now what? What are my next steps?

 

I work with individuals just like you every day! I help them explore their thoughts, ideas, and dreams to dig deep and find their true passion.

 

I use my life and past career experience in conjunction with my life coaching style, to help people discover who they want to be, who they want others to see when they interact with them personally or professionally.

 

Over the years I realized that I had a talent for helping people to clarify and recognize their issues, identify their struggles and help them discover the infinite possibilities for deliverance and prosperity in whatever area of life they desired.

 

My life’s mantra is "integrity first, family before self and committed to excellence". Let me partner with you and show you how you can develop and live out your own mantra!
