I am experienced as part of a military family with a passion for helping families find peace and happiness.
Although originally from Clovis, California, I earned my Master's degree at University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and since moved all over because of the military. I feel privileged to have known many people along this journey but have since returned to my home town to raise my family. It's an honor to see such diversity in the world as people explore their thoughts and feelings each in their own unique way.
Whenever anyone is caught juggling too many things: career, family, friends, parenting, leisure, finances, retirement, romance,... It is expected that eventually one or several may fall, sometimes, these challenges are just temporary setbacks. Let me help you and your loved ones through it!
