FAQ

I’d like to share why I’ve chosen this journey. This path has become my calling and my passion. As a parent to an autistic boy, I can truly empathize with the emotions of others, their situations, and what they are going through.

I’ve had my fair share of moments where I felt isolated and even ashamed as a parent. I found myself comparing my child to others, constantly asking, “Why me?” or “Why my child?” Despite the incredible support network we had, these feelings persisted. I did everything in my power to support my son while also balancing the demands of being a parent, working, and, at one point, even being my son’s school aide. However, it all became overwhelming.

Through working with a Life Coach who was also trained in counseling and various therapies, I underwent a transformation. I became more optimistic about life and realized that therapy and coaching are not just for those with significant past traumas but are valuable for everyone’s overall well-being. Coaching and therapy helped me find balance in my life, enabling me to be an even better parent to my son.

My mission as a life coach and counseling hypnotherapist is to be a guiding light, a supportive presence, and a compassionate listener for others. I want to help them navigate the highs and lows of life, just as I have experienced, so they too can enjoy a more fulfilling life.
