Often the hardest thing one can do is designate time for self-care and improvement.
The second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these. Mark 12:31
• living a life free from guilt, anxiety, sadness, and worry.
• greater peace and contentment with yourself, others, and God.
• having a lifestyle that you enjoy and embracing your life to its fullest.
There is Hope!
I can help you develop tools to have greater peace and contentment, create the lifestyle you desire, control your thinking, and move past anxiety, guilt, and sadness. I help those to walk through the challenges facing them and find a sense of self again.
EMDR THERAPY: What is it?
“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.”
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed to help individuals work to reveal a wholehearted way.
During the process, as The Daring Way™ Facilitator, I will lead you on exploring topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness.
Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead that will lead to wholehearted living.
New Daring Greatly Classes in 2023 coming soon.
Give yourself permission to show up, be seen, and live brave.

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. You’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.
I work with professionals and students who are coping with the unique challenges we face in today’s world, the loss of normality, connection, and security. If you have experienced first hand or secondary trauma, are coping with new life demands with your children or family, or are managing major shifts in your career or financial security I am here to provide support and the tools to help you through this.
It is our aim to give you hope and provide meaningful ways to help you grow as a person so you can love well in your marriage and family, as well as live a good and purposeful life.

Couples therapy ---
Couples therapy is not about trying to change or complain about your partner but learning how to better understand, respect, and appreciate his or her perspective and feelings. It is about stopping the blame, the criticism, and the repeating painful dysfunctional pattern that leads to unhappiness and divorce. Couples therapy is for

infidelity or broken trust

Emotional and Verbal Abuse

If you Ignore Relationship Problems, They Just Get Worse
If you do nothing, try harder, or keep saying you'll change, it often leads to the exact same behaviors. In research studies, The Gottman Institute offers the most successful marriage courses to be found anywhere. Backed by decades of research and proven results, we have seen their principles and exercises save and solidify countless marriages.
