About Me
About 6 years ago I changed my career direction to counseling. I worked in a corporate office, in management, with long hours and had a hard time balancing my family duties. At the time, that is what they were, "duties". Get kids to school, check, buy groceries, check, get myself to work, check, go to kids soccer game, check. Nothing was fun any more. I felt unhealthy, I was tired all the time, and I couldn't remember why I was working so hard.
I share my story because I want you to know me. I've lived through being overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, and even depressed. Today I look back and I don't even know how I got there, but I'm glad I was able to break free.
Now I enjoy working with others. I have spent years helping people reduce anxiety, excess worry, and low self-esteem. I have taken my skills to the next level to help with codependency, depression, and anger management. As a nutrition and wellness coach, I also help people get their physical health back in check. Additionally, I have helped many people with career direction coaching and management skills. I'm not suggesting to change your career like I did, but maybe a few changes to the way we view ourselves, our careers, and our family can help us to find a way to re-balance your life. 
I use a solution focused approach with psycho education information and we target the goals you want to work on. It is amazing how making a few changes (I typically start with just 3 things in your life), can begin to change your life in the direction you have been looking for. Sometimes all we need is a different view of the world, our responsibilities, or the expectations we have for ourselves and improvements may be possible quickly. 
I offer flexible hours and even some saturdays to meet your busy needs. In addition to flexible hours, I offer tele-counseling for the person who cannot leave the office for lunch, or who has football right after work. We can web-chat and save you the time on the road. The only thing I try to do is meet face to face first, for one or two sessions, just so we can get to know each other. Then it feels just a little more personal. Hope to meet you soon.
