Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.
— Ralph Harsten
The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are... The second greatest is being happy with what you find...

None of us are immune to the obstacles that arise in our lives, and at times we often feel as though they have become "too much to bear".  Once this happens our coping skills kick in, some are toxic and some are healthy.   One of my goals is to provide a safe, caring atmosphere where you can feel empowered to explore the many possibilities that are available to you.

I obtained my Master's Degree in Counseling from National- Louis University and use a Client Centered and Holistic Approach. What is Client centered?  Well, it is just as it sounds-  IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!   We will work together to find solutions to your problem or issue.  Holistic approach will focus on your mind, body and spirit. I have experience with teenagers, adults, domestic and sexual assault victims,  life transitions, cross cultural and spiritual guidance.

Life is a purposeful action.
