Helping you overcome the doubts that hold you back.
When you imagined where you would be at this point in your life, this is not what you pictured.
Honestly, you have watched many, many TV episodes while hiding from the world, and your current life is the awkward beginning of the series, but what you want is the big reveal at the end. In fact, instead of the snarky comeback you wish came to mind when stuck in an uncomfortable conversation, you’re pretty sure you come across more Rory Gilmore than Lorelei. Then, later, you find yourself obsessing about what you could have said, and what that person must think of you now, and…..you press play on the next episode
You have ideas of being more accomplished, more confident, more ambitious.
But you’re stuck. Overwhelmed. Lost.
Life has turned into working hard to put one foot in front of the other rather than living with joy and enthusiasm.
You are ready to take a look at where you’ve come from and face it head on. Yes, you’ve made mistakes, and often you've been mistreated by those who you held dear.
But don’t despair.
Life is too short and too precious to be immobilized by despair, anxiety and doubt. You have some big decisions to make right now, and you need someone who can help you calm the worries and find a new way to view who you have been and become who you want to be.
Because you can solve this. You aren’t destined to be where you are now.
How I Can Help
For the past 20 years, I have been working with kids as a teacher and social worker. I also happen to be a mom of imperfect kids. So, I understand feeling overwhelmed with adulting and the constant worry about doing the right thing.
In fact, I often feel like one of those circus performers who is trying desperately to keep all of the plates spinning on those skinny sticks so that one doesn’t come crashing down. You know the ones I’m talking about. One plate is the doctor appointments, another plate is meeting deadlines at work, and the most wobbly plate is figuring out how to get a decent meal on the table a couple of times a week. And let’s not even think about homework.
Seriously, it's stressful to handle parenting, school struggles, family relationships all while getting the bathrooms cleaned once in a while. #lifegoals
Luckily, I love a good challenge. I am fascinated by learning what makes people tick and finding out how people solve problems. I suppose that is what motivated me to earn my Masters in Social Work, Masters in Educational Leadership, and earn my National Certification in Exceptional Needs. I know what you’re thinking- lady, you need a hobby. And you’re probably right. I’m working on it. And when I’m not teaching or counseling, I am a book club nerd and podcast enthusiast. Because it is the stories that make life interesting.
