Women: You wake up everyday and feel stressed, anxious or lonely but it’s so overwhelming you are unsure how to manage such discomfort. Then there is the daily grind of working, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and caring for your children. It never ends. When you finally find a quiet moment, instead of embracing the calm or exercising the way you did in the past, you find yourself scrolling and comparing your life to others on social media. Nobody else in your life really knows what you are experiencing or how anxious you feel because you are the one who has to keep it all together for your family, your kids or your partner. You feel like you have lost the energy and joy you felt before having a family. Although you are surrounded by lots of people, you can’t shake feeling lonely and overwhelmed. If you find yourself saying, this is me, I am here to listen. I can help you find peace, gain back some control and live with more balance.
Young adults: Maybe you are someone who is looking for the perfect match. There is lingering pressure from your parents, society and yourself because you have always felt by now you would have found love. The more time passes, the more uncertain you feel about the people you meet, and frustrated that finding someone has required so much effort. It’s just down right exhausting. I can support you. I have years of experience talking to young people about relationships, commitment, and how to create healthy boundaries. I am passionate about helping others find what they are seeking in their quest for an authentic and healthy love life.
Teens: And then there are your teenagers! DYundRst& w@ I’m sAyn? You feel as if you and your teen are speaking a different language. Growing up is hard, and raising a teenager in today’s tech world is even more challenging. You feel like no matter how much you try to help your teenager, it’s just not working; they simply need more support. Drawing on my skills as a Social Worker, Prevention Educator and Sexuality Educator, I help empower the teens I work with to gain the knowledge and skills critical for maintaining their social, emotional and physical health.
