Since I was a teenager I've always wanted to be a Pastoral Counselor, the other pieces of my life have been the bonus I didn't know I wanted. I didn’t wake up one day to become a speaker, author, or media personality. No, first I had to deal with breast cancer, and start my practice over first. So, yes, I've had my share of setbacks, but I was committed to making the changes needed to be exactly who I believed I was called to be.
And with every step, I found the faith, vision, and motivation needed to walk in the purpose of my life. I understand that in change there is an opportunity; opportunity for you to be all you've dreamed of. So, I help others see their opportunity rather than an obstacle when approached the right way.
