Professional statement

Remember how you used to long for each other? Remember how you used to gaze lovingly into each other's eyes? Love was magical then. What makes those special desires fade? I believe you can keep that love alive! I have done extensive research on love and I am trained to show you how to have healthy romantic love relationships --- at any age!

Some other reasons people come to see me are: Learning to love yourself, enhancing self-esteem, gaining self-confidence and becoming empowered. Feeling good about one's self, gaining control over your life, managing stress, intimacy issues, anger, anxiety, sexuality, chronic illness, grief, infidelity or divorce are all specialties.

Message to clients

All of us, at some point in our lives have a life challenge - some of us more than others and it's important that we feel comfortable enough to reach out to someone beyond family and friends, with the expertise to advise us or give us the wisdom we need to make the next step forward a good one. Life can be difficult and confusing and sometimes emotions can make it harder to see clearly. I help you believe in yourself and give you the courage and confidence to move forward with higher self-esteem and a lighter heart.
