"Together, we are able to uncover
an almost unlimited potential for greatness"
I am a tough, midwestern girl filled with compassion, as well as an experienced psychotherapist and business owner. However, I did not start out my professional life as a therapist.
Believe it or not, I started out as an accountant.
I loved numbers (still do,) which was a logical world without emotions. I was comfortable there. It was safe. It protected me from people and situations in my life that led me to hide my emotions, turn them inward and drive me toward self-sabotaging behaviors. Eventually I did some healing work of my own, discovering that a lifetime spent suppressing emotions DOES NOT work.
After awhile, I came to the conclusion that accounting was not going to cut it and I signed up for a training course in counseling. I have always been a good listener, easily picking up on the feelings of others and I quickly realized this was my world. At that point, I went back to school to become a licensed therapist. This brings me to today . . .
Here's what you need to know:
I am a change agent. I love working with people who want things to change.
I am a straight shooter -- I most definitely will call out B.S.
I will not encourage a sustained story of helplessness or disempowerment
I set a high standard for myself to help you succeed
I love to teach people how to succeed without compromising their values
and how to unapologetically become the person they have always wanted to be.
