How do you try to make a difference in the lives of your patients?
I have a deep understanding of individual differences and the fact that life can be difficult at times. Staying calm and patient with deep understanding allows my clients to see themselves through me and slowly have understanding for themselves and their situations.
At different times I provide suggestions and allow them to examine it for themselves and do their own examinations of the situations.
I intend to create an atmosphere of love and safety for my clients to be able to be all they can be without any judgments. Which will allow them to open up to me and use their problem solving strategies.
Generally, unhappiness with life will have a direct and adverse effect on relationships with loved ones, people at work, and society. To reach happiness in life, the best results are achieved by consulting with someone you feel totally safe and confident with.

Attributes Success To:
Helping her clients reach their goals, and helping them to have belief, and empowering them to open the journey for them to achieve their goals.
Believing in Change and the process of growth. Change is always hard and when the individual learns to believe in themselves, that makes the journey more pleasant and possible.
I attribute my success to my persistence, love, and believing in my clients. Being patient with them in their journey and walking with them to get their strength back and
move forward toward their goals and desires.
I love people and understand we all have strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes our strengths get weak and by having someone who cares and understand the situation allows the individual to pick themselves up and be able to walk through life again. Which is very exciting to me to see the change in my clients.
