I am so grateful for you.  You are very gifted at knowing what is needed and how to go about it.  I know there are things you say or seeds you plant and it takes me a bit to catch on or be open to (like with my family), but you’ve always been on point.  You are impacting my life is such a positive way.   Thank you so much.”       – JM, 38-year-old

Life Coaching & Therapy

Don’t let past events or your emotions run your life. You’re so much more than this! Process and learn from your past to create the life you want to live.

Hence, my slogan “A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skillful Sailor” … Use your past for good and your emotions for gain!

And if you didn’t know, emotion regulation is a skill, which is good news because you can learn it and put it into practice right away!

It’s so empowering to stay emotionally grounded in charged situations. Learn how to create a new way of being [not repeat the past]. Healthy connections, meaningful understanding, a new path forward.

Life Coaching & Therapy

Clients who get the most out of their therapy:

*Attend regularly to keep the momentum

*Do the activities assigned in between sessions

*Ask a lot of questions

*Bring a notebook (or ask for paper) to capture the highlights. Very helpful to look back on!

*Bring in real-life examples/anecdotes of challenging dialogue or circumstance they encountered. We discuss ways it could’ve been handled constructively.


You have more control than you think.
