My number one favorite topic is true Christianity as defined by the person of Jesus Christ

My second most favorite topics are emotions, mindsets, & relationships, & their impact on our nervous system and beliefs

My passion is showing the interconnection of all the above and how we can improve that interconnection, which then transforms our life & faith

I'm also a proud Dog Mom of 2 spoiled pups, active in my church, and a life-long learner

Most importantly, I stand strong in who I am in Christ. And it took me a long time to claim my identity as my Authentic Christ-centered Calm, Confident, Empowered self

Life is so much more beautiful, meaningful, and love-filled with Christ and especially once you deeply embrace who you are in Christ

Your path to claim your Identity as your

Authentic Christ-centered Calm, Confident, Empowered self

does not need to be the long, rocky, difficult one mine was

I grew up in an unstable home so learned insecurity, anxiety, and fear. In my early 20s, I failed out of college and got involved in an unhealthy relationship. We married and had ups and difficult downs and drama with the latter becoming the norm. I stayed in that for almost 30 years.

It was during that marriage that I found Christ, and my journey truly began. Because of Christ, I returned to college in my 40s and completed the path to Licensed Professional Counselor, invested in my own therapy, devoted myself to 100s of hours of intense post-Master's degree education, and found my true passion and gifting.

My true passion is to help you find your true passion & gifting in Christ and not have to go through all I did to get there. I do so by helping you heal your emotions, mindsets, relationships, and nervous system; it's all intertwined.

And that's why I do what I do
