I believe in supporting individuals to become their own advocate and learn to find and honor their inner voice. I offer a respectful, optimistic, open-minded and practical approach to the personal challenges that are barriers to feeling happy and confident. I see myself as one member of your well-being health team. I help the individual to explore the issues or challenges they want help with. Together we explore how the issues has been interfering with your ability to feel in control of your life and then create a plan and develop strategies that will provide the security for the individual to feel capable in managing their daily life. I believe in celebrating the achievements, no matter how small. This will help in building a foundation of personal worth and self-confidence.
I offer a variety of ways to reach your goals. This includes learning about how our thoughts and feelings effect our behavior, finding a balance between exposure to to the technical world (computers, cell phones, ect.) and time spent with real people, nature, and animals, learning self care and believing humor is essential to the healing process.
I love to spend time hanging out with my horses and other four and two legged creatures in my life. Other interests include spending time with friends and family, lots of laughter, dancing to all types of music, reading, spending time watching the moon and stars and enjoying sunshine.
