Welcome

Well, Hello! I am so glad you clicked on my website to learn more about how I am best suited to serve you. But first, take a deep breath right now….Inhale…..Exhale…..You’ve made the first step.

I know it has to be exhausting finding yourself frequently wrestling with unworthy feelings and negative thoughts like, “I am not good enough,” or “It’s my fault,” and internally comparing yourself to others. It just seems like everyone else has it all together and you secretly feel like a royal hot mess.  Kids are a mess. Your house is a mess.  And your relationship, welp, thats hanging on by a thread as well. You’re known to be a task oriented, faith driven, productive person, that on the outside, holds it all together.  But now you find yourself just looking for relief.

Maybe you’re a woman of color struggling with being unapologetically you. You worry that people will not accept you for who you are. Every time you find yourself in places like churches, small groups, school, work, store, etc., where you’re the minority, you feel your heart pounding, thoughts racing and insecurity rising. Many times you’ve felt and experienced situations where you were unsafe, mischaracterized and treated as if your life doesn’t matter. These crushing experiences have caused you to avoid such spaces and caused you to doubt your worth as a person.

Listen ladies, I am here for all of it and I hear you.
