“Your motivation is key when making changes in your life. Change can be very difficult and slow. We might like our routine or habits, but know that this routine, lifestyle or substance is not productive, healthy, or safe. Perhaps we just want to do better this year than we did in the last year. Become a better version of yourself!”
Addictions (Food, Drug, Alcohol)
“I can successfully help individuals with emotional and behavioral difficulties because significant emotional disruptions, traumatic events and emotional turmoil happened in my childhood and were left unresolved. My approach is holistic and family oriented. I encourage parental involvement with children to help guide you and your child to an improved, happier, and healthy relationship and future!”

“Children thrive on positive touch and praise. This also includes allowing for open communication. Focus on the positives rather than the negative. Provide hugs and kisses daily and encourage your child to speak to you from the beginning. Give them opportunities to spend quality time with you. Hear out their feelings instead of discounting them.”
