Sometimes one event or experience is enough to send your whole life into a whirlwind. For me, it was a divorce. It was a time filled with sadness, disappointment, and loneliness. It felt like I was going in slow motion and no matter how fast I peddled I was not moving. Nothing in my life was changing. It was sadness, disappointment and loneliness, on an endless loop. This cycle went on in my life for years. I tried so many ways to deal with it on my own, but I couldn’t break free.
It’s been said that when the student is ready the teacher will appear. I was ready and she arrived. She helped me to connect to myself, to my heart, to my soul and I began to understand my feelings. I wasn’t broken. I needed healing in my heart and in my mind. She taught me how to heal and how to recover from my heart aches and the disappointments in my life.
I was able to break free from the cycle of depression, and healed from memories of the past. As I healed, I was able to resolve anxiety and trauma that held me captive. I built and fueled new goals and dreams. I went on to Florida State University to complete my bachelor’s degree in communication arts. From there I went to Troy State University where I completed my master’s degree in counseling psychology.
I was so changed by the healing I experienced I went on to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Now, I help women heal from the cycle of anxiety, depression and trauma in their lives.
My goal, in the very first session, is to begin to equip you with tools to change the way you feel, immediately. As we continue to work together you will learn healthier ways of thinking, and how to change the way anxiety, depression and trauma impact your thinking and your life. You will get relief, and most importantly, you don’t have to rehash all of your sadness and trauma in order to work through it. The point is to gain relief. Working together we can rewire your brain and give you the tools you need to feel better and grow a better life.
I love the work I do. Nothing makes my heart sing like being a part of a women’s life as she heals from heartache and disappointment. Well, almost nothing. When I’m not working, I enjoy running, dancing and I fancy myself as a hobby photographer. These hobbies keep me moving and dancing through life. I’m a late bloomer runner. I waited till I was 45 years old to learn to run and I have run multiple ½ marathons. I’m also a Ballroom Dancer and a hobby photographer. If there's music playing I'm dancing. It’s not unusual to look up and notice me running or dancing down the street during my morning exercise time. Frequently you can catch me taking pictures of small critters and flowers for my grandchildren. None of these things would have happened if I had not learned how to break the cycle of anxiety, depression and trauma. I can help you heal your life in a way that reduces your pain, changes what you feel and unveils a brighter future.
