About me

If you are feeling overwhelmed or at a crossroads in your life...

If you feel that there are significant issues from your life experience that prevent you from making positive choices...

If you are struggling to maintain healthy relationships with family, friends or partners...

...talking to someone who is completely separate from the issues can be a huge relief!

If you want to make changes to your mood, your decisions or your outlook on life, but aren’t sure how or even what those changes could be, maybe I can help!
