My Mission is to empower you to know yourself and to act in alignment with your values, principles, and truths; in essence, to find your authentic self, to trust and respect yourself.
My Vision is to shift the context of your recovery from coping with and managing addictions and/or mental health issues, to uncovering and healing the deepest source of your addictions and suffering, and as a result becoming more self-realized. To be the creator of a life you are truly proud of.
I will work together with you to find your personal power. Through self-discovery exercises you will learn how to use the relationship of your head, heart and center to build a life of balance and prosperity.
I coach each client as a unique individual. I truly believe that you have everything you need inside to create the life you dream of. My job as your coach is to build a pathway to your true self.
