I aim to develop and enhance Mental Strength. Mental strength requires a three-pronged approach—managing our thoughts, regulating our emotions, and behaving productively despite our circumstances. While all three areas can be challenging, it is often our thoughts that make it most difficult to be mentally strong.

Daily, our internal monologue (self-talk) narrates our experience. Our self-talk guides our emotions and behavior and influences the way we interact in our environment and with others. It also plays a major role in how we feel about ourselves, other people, and the world in general.

I utilize positively focused cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I work together with individuals who desire positive change. I primarily focus on helping clients identify aspects of a limiting mindset and grow and develop a growth mindset. I help clients create and attain contentment, fulfillment, success, freedom, acceptance, confidence and peace. The tools of CBT allow individuals to more regularly practice accurate thinking and experience positive emotional states, such as gratitude, confidence, and peace because individuals focus their efforts on creating beneficial cognitive patterns.

Coaching: I facilitate Self-Actualization. I help you pursue your full potential in your personal and/or professional life. You have the potential to choose what you believe about yourself, your life, people in your life, your finances, and your health. You can either choose beliefs that limit you or beliefs that empower you to move forward.  

"(Self-Actualization is) the desire for self-fulfillment, namely the tendency for him(her) to become actualized in what he(she) is potentially. This tendency might be phrased as the desire to become more and more what one is to become everything that one is capable of."   -Maslow

Therapy: I help improve healthy beliefs about yourself, others, and the world. Unhealthy thoughts and beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world affect our feelings and drive our behaviors. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so that you can learn to view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more healthy way.  I help clients identify unhealthy thinking patterns and guide them in replacing them with healthy thinking habits. I facilitate improving mental strength. Mental strength requires a three-pronged approach- managing our thoughts, regulating our emotions, and behaving productively despite our circumstances.
