I assist others in gaining the freedom to access and grow into their power.

About me

Described by many as a natural people person, I am a certified life strategies coach, with a master's degree in social work, and a passion for working with individuals from all walks of life. My experiences as a social worker, and assisting family, friends, and colleagues through the ups and downs of life, helped me to realize that many of us are not following our life paths due to fear, anxiety, and stress. Having been held back by anxieties, I understand the potential barriers to change. However, I also know that once we overcome those obstacles that we are capable of living our dreams. I love to listen and assist others in creating workable goals and plans to achieve life success. As a life coach, I use a solutions oriented and positive visualization approach to helping others access their freedom to grow into their power and live their best lives.

Experience, Certifications and Training

  • Certified Life Strategies Coach
  • MSW, University of Chicago

When I was a teenager trudging through my freshman year of college, feeling like I wasn't good at anything, I called my mom and asked her the most important question I've ever asked her, "what am I good at?" My mom said that I was good with people,and I realized that my life's purpose is to connect and work with people that may be asking that same question of themselves. Throughout much of my 11 year career, I've worked with youth, families, and communities in efforts to assist them in overcoming life's tricky obstacles. I've been fortunate to share in and contribute to the experiences of those who've found creative ways to grow,change, and live, despite the challenges they face. I hold an MSW and a certificate in life strategies coaching, which have given me the techniques and tools to continue assisting others in gaining freedom and fearlessness to access their dreams.
