“The mind is everything, what we think we become.”
I believe that we all come from different backgrounds and it is our responsibility to unlearn the maladaptive behaviors and thoughts that we were taught and rewrite our story. Going through this journey of life, we may face many obstacles; pain, hurt, and disappointment. Often, we oversee the beauty hidden within. We all need outside help at times to improve our overall way of life. As an empath and prior active duty personal in the military, I have deep empathy and compassion for my clients, however if I am being honest, I continue to swear like a sailor. I am brutally honest, and believe honesty is the key ingredient in healing therapeutically. I am passionate and completely present in each session to help my clients get the care and amount of respect that is needed to heal. I am beyond grateful to assist in helping you create a better mindset, future, and confidence to live a healthy fulfilled life.
