I remember feeling debilitated by a lack of self-worth and the stress that resulted from my destructive relationship with myself throughout my teens and early twenties.  I remember feeling lost. I didn't have the support I needed nor the guidance about where to look for help.

 

Anxiety, depression, feelings of hopelessness and low self-esteem have reached epidemic proportions in our society and much of today's youth are lacking the understanding and tools to help navigate these internal challenges.

This is why i've created programs that infuse some of the latest and accessible tools to help youth:

  • manage stress and anxiety

  • claim their self-worth and innate value

  • cultivate a strong sense of self that allows them to take risks and go after their dreams

  • understand 'survival brain' and not be ruled by the inner critic

  • heal depression & anxiety

  • connect to their inner wisdom

  • open up and claim their inner gifts
