I believe that everybody can change, if they want to.

People are capable of amazing things, good and bad.  When we find out the beliefs, fears and hopes that we and others hold, we can see how a behaviour (no matter how irrational) makes sense from the owner’s emotional plane.

My Promise

I am gutsy, caring, non-judgmental and  honest.  I  will tell you what I see and hear.  I tread the line between empathy and fearlessness, so brace yourself to be challenged on your perspectives and assumptions.


Neuroscience research has shown that our brains are undeniably plastic and that nothing is as strong as a made up mind.   It can even alter reality for the owner.



Decide what you want and I will help you get there.


If you don’t know what you want yet, that’s important.  Urgency sometime requires us to slow -w-a-y- down and step into our own pocket of stillness.  So we can be quiet and give our mind what it needs to do what it does best.
