I am a CADC-1, and Certified Life Coach with a decade of experience in addiction. I currently serve on the Board of Directors at Pathway Home for Women, a residential recovery home but 2 1/2 years ago transitioned from my position as a Counselor and Life Coach in the program into private practice with Arise Counseling and Coaching. I has been instrumental in breaking non-productive cycles and teaching how to experience life with healthy positive outcomes.
My training in Biblical inner healing has given me the skill of getting to the heart of the matter, or the roots that produce the fruits of unhealthy choices, behaviors, and actions. I am passionate about empowering adolescents as well as adult men, women to experience lasting breakthrough from any circumstance or life pattern that leaves them stuck, stale, and stagnant. I believe in a more holistic approach to recovery and mental health and use current brain based neuroscience and Emotional Intelligence as well as other tools to condition the muscles of the mind, will, and emotions to become “fit” in choices, and responses to life. I empower clients to discover and live from their God-given purpose, while developing their internal resources that results in a strong sense of identity, life balance and an overall sense of well-being. My motto is that we are alive to thrive!
