Had I not had the tools I will be talking about in this blog and podcast I am honestly not sure I would have made it through the last year.

My purpose is to share the knowledge I have gleaned over the past 11 years in the hopes that these tools will help you reach a place of peace and balance in your life.

Take the time to learn as much as you can to help them and let them know what you need too. Sometimes a little permission and security is all we need to open the lines of communication with you.
