My Journey

Just like you, I’ve had to grow and evolve throughout my life. Through my growth experiences I realized the most meaningful thing for me is to be of service to other people — as a wife and mom, “Tia” and friend, but also in my career. With my particular blend of interests and talents I decided that the best way for me to be helpful to others was as a counselor and relationship and life coach.

I began my career as a middle and high school teacher.  I earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. I am a trained general practitioner psychotherapist as well as a Relationship and Life Coach. Now I have over 30 years of experience helping people create more Purpose, Joy, and Success in their lives and I’m here, ready to help you too.

Available in Weston, Florida, across America and Internationally 

My journey through my own process allows me to help my clients reach their full potential.  I meet with individuals and couples all over the world because I specialize in online coaching. If you prefer an in-person service, that’s no problem. I can meet you at my office in Weston, Florida.

What can I do for you?

I want you to have the proactive mindset, joy and success you deserve. My unique blend of expertise as a Counselor, Relationship & Life Coach helps me work with individuals and couples on several levels using a variety of evidence-based strategies. As a Counselor, I focus on the core emotions that continue to drive your behaviors and overwhelming feelings time and time again.  I will help you uncover the motives behind what you say and do as well as assist you in developing new and better coping skills to manage life’s stressors in a more positive and productive ways.

I can help you understand yourself on a deep, core level – the level where powerful, transformational, lasting growth happens.  My training and experience allows me to help you take action, and begin practicing the day-to-day strategies that will actually transform your life.  As a Relationship and Life Coach , I can help you understand how to have sustain and grow lasting relationships with your spouse or partner, your extended family and your children.
