My job is to give you the tools to change what hasn't been working, believe in your unique purpose, and value who you already are.   

my EXPERTISE:

it's personal to me

Our thoughts are the language that create our healing & our suffering. We all have the power to change that language, we just have to be taught how.  It matters to me how you feel because I've suffered too.  My training provides the methods to heal, but my personal story drives the passion.   

cutting out what doesn't last

Some of the mental wellness world is full of tricks & tips that don't give you lasting change.  My goal is to teach you to master your own healing long term by giving you a strategy that promotes deep healing with the steps you can stick to.  You'll learn a mindset strategy you can rely on for a lifetime.

my sweat, tears & grit

After 3 decades of rigorous higher education & research, I created a program that yields LASTING THOUGHT CHANGE. This is the method I teach others, the one I taught myself & the one that changed my brain forever.

Part of my story comes from my experiences growing up as a foster kid:  I was without a support system most of the time but determined not to stay that way. 

  

My constant fear of rejection kept me imprisoned.  I examined every interaction for signs of acceptance or abandonment.  It was an exhausting way to live.  I didn't understand that my self esteem was so low I had:

Bound my value to the opinions of others.

During my training in Research Psychology & Mind-set Coaching, I learned some of the steps that can create a new way of thinking, but the practical application didn't work long term.  Then, in my 40s I found the combination of steps that made all the theory doable, fit within my life & change my brain forever.

If you're like me, you want change.  
No.  You want Freedom from
thoughts that create pain

I'm passionate about growth that comes from an Authentic, Heart-Perspective & IS ROOTED in research-backed methods but none of my knowledge & passion came for free...

A little about

As an adult, I was ashamed of my childhood & myself. I thought self-acceptance was reserved for certain types of people but not me. There were things I wanted to do, but I lacked the confidence to try because I was afraid to fail.

I speak from the heart, because we don't have time for half-hearted sentiment or beating around the bush. But I'm not careless with my words either. Words matter. Most importantly, the words you use with yourself matter.

The Blog

Bringing a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners approach to Psychology - it's about time we got unafraid to talk. About what scares us & what ignites us. About the parts of us we want no one to see. It's time we allowed the time to get to know our OWN selves - learning what we love, facing what we don't want & embracing both without all the self-doubt & judgement.
