I listen, counsel, and allow for your transformation
It can be hard to cope in this ever-changing world. I enjoy working with my clients and/or their families to find their “JOY” again in life. Do you want more out of life? Do you want more than what a life coach or an accountability coach has to offer such as therapy with a licensed therapist with actual behavior management training and over 20 years experience? Your treatment should NOT feel like a fast-food drive thru.
