I authentically care and want to provide a safe space for you to process your feelings. I would like to help you identify the issue, process it, and heal whatever your need is, or accomplish whatever your goal is. We all go through ups and downs, and need help at some point in our life.
I have healed myself from my own hardships and become healthy and happy, I can empathize. I can help you identify, the emotional pain point, or unhealthy pattern, then teach you skills and healthy coping you can use change to create positive change. Let’s interrupt that old neuropathway of emotional discomfort, and create a new one of health and confidence thereby alleviating the discomfort, and increasing your clarity.

Every morning I wake up and meditate in my garden, watching the hummingbirds bathing in the fountain, and feeling the sun ray’s beaming on my face. I am grateful for another beautiful day in which I can read, write a poem, or play at the beach. I accomplished my childhood dream of being a published writer- am an Amazon Best Selling author! It’s kind of cool. Love connecting to community. Fell in love with Hilo, Hawaii, hope to go back soon!
