Cultivating a transformative space from within You

Imagine planting a seed, we know that the sun, water, soil and You (planter) are elements in divine harmony working towards a fruitful harvest. You may choose to plant any seed in the soil, the seed will grow!

Often, we are planting seeds in our consciousness, and we nurture and cultivate those seeds through our thoughts, behaviors, and how we adjust in life. How we adjust in life is based on how we perceive what is occurring in our reality and how we perceive ourselves in relation to the reality.

When we are unsure…do we plant seeds of doubt or seeds of discovery? Both will grow, so which seed do you choose to plant?

Think of me as an element

You can think of me as an element that is working in harmony, balance and in an order with you, to help cultivate the most fruitful state of being! The most fruitful state of being is where self-mastery exists, a healthy state of mind, clarity, and the ability to have grace while navigating through more difficult life transitions.

I am here to encourage and support you in the ability to adjust to life in accordance with your highest good.

I carry with me over 10 years of experience working with adolescents, individuals and families improving their relationships to themselves and others. My work has reflected helping individuals navigate depression and anxiety, feelings of low self-esteem, healing traumas, and adjusting well to various life transitions.

I have worked in a forensic setting for numerous years helping individuals deal with grief, crisis interventions, suicidal ideations, family conflict and separation, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief of loved ones, grief of their old selves and adjusting to their new sense of reality. I have experienced with working with individuals that committed sexual offenses, court mandated anger management, homelessness and foster care.

As a former foster parent, I contributed to the enrichment, safety, and development of pre-teen and teenage girls to help provide guidance and support through their various life transitions. I am very comfortable to work with individuals from various backgrounds, as I am a humanitarian by nature!

What do I bring to the session?

I bring an engaging positive energy into each session. I follow a person-centered approach in which each session is tailored to your specific needs. I help to build on your strengths, and gracefully work through any thoughts that are challenging or that may not be serving your highest good.
