"Specialize in women's issues: grief, depression, anxiety, childhood trauma/PTSD"
Why I chose to be in the helping profession
I am a retired air force officer and became a certified life coach after being a nurse for 33 years. My background and passions are is in women’s health, psychiatry, and religious studies. I specialize in helping adults heal from childhood trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and grief.
Many of my clients have lived a successful life style and one day find themselves unable to get out of bed and unable to make decisions. They begin questioning their purpose. They hit a glass ceiling.
As a nurse, I have witnessed how many physical illnesses are the result of unresolved emotional traumas and unresolved grief. I believe everyone has the answers to their dilemmas deep within themselves. The reason our internal information is not readily available for decision making, is due to life events, which has taught us not to trust our inner truth, our logic, our heart. Our thoughts, feelings, and instincts are often in conflict with one another, which results in confusion, distrust, and fear.
My goal is to teach you life skills that can be utilized daily. These life skills will help you tune into your inner wisdom, reach equilibrium, and regain a healthy sense of calm, confidence, and control in your life. I look forward to connecting with you and helping you continue your healing journey.
