WHY I AM A COUNSELOR:

This is the path I have chosen because I have learned the value of counseling in my own life, the importance of setting goals, making better choices, being authentic, speaking my own truth, honesty, positive & healthy lifestyle, setting boundaries and self care. This is what I teach and help my clients aspire and work towards to change their lives and learn who they are to contribute all they can to make a better world for themselves and others around them. In my training as a Counselor and as a Therapist I have learned many models and therapeutic methods, however all come to down to one essential task, to become a person.
