It has been a tremendously long and uphill journey for me to be in this current mindset of peace and a place of safety and trust. For so long I ran from the uncomfortable feelings of entrapment and overwhelm, always seeking new adventures to spark and divert my attention from the things that I was afraid of and caused me emotional pain. What helped me to overcome my own limitations was getting older or maturing, getting an education for understanding human nature, and meditation seeking the peace within.

Ever since I was a very young child I had a wonderful outlook on life and a happiness energy that actually saved me from situations that could have turned out far worse. As a teenager people would ask me what I was on, as on drugs, only I wasn’t, it was just me being and feeling joy.

But, adulthood took its toll, being the mother of six children, living in poverty, struggling to provide and make life better for us all I became a very serious and stressed person.

more to come…

I received a Bachelor of Science in Community Development and a Master of Applied Psychology from Southern Oregon University. Working with non-profits in the fields of adults with developmental disabilities and assisting low-income seniors finding  resources , my interest led me to study the connection between human behavior and the needs of individuals that eventually leads to empowerment.

As a certified Life Coach in NLP one of my powers is in recognizing private coaching as an avenue to serve the population with which I most identify; serving individuals to make choices and empower themselves through the understanding of human behavior and move themselves forward in their life.

Through this process I also want to share how I found that child again and brought her out to play. Once again she showed me the wonders and joy of life.

I believe that everyone can understand the mental and cognitive processes behind their behavior and is willing to explore who they are and what motivates them in their life. My commitment to my clients is to empower them upon their personal path of self-discovery and personal development.

A practical approach of self-knowledge to personal development I will challenge you to consciously see who you are and what direction you want to go. By understanding your beliefs, identity, attitudes, and mindset you see how to be congruent with your ideal self. And, find that inner child of joy and wonder.

Although early life development and early formative experiences within the family, at school, etc. can help to shape us as adults, personal development should not stop later in life. You are who you are because these life experiences and the environment in which you live. Together we explore your life lived and yet to be lived to create the congruence toward your personal development direction.

I believe the objective of personal development is to move beyond limiting fears or beliefs and empower you to achieve extraordinary results in your life as you create a meaningful way of living. Personal development is a lifelong process. It is a way for people to assess their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realize and maximize their potential.

Plan to make relevant, positive and effective life choices and decisions for your future to enable personal empowerment.
