“If you are having thoughts of suicide, talk to someone you trust”
"Things always get better with time"
“Sometimes all we need is just a new perspective.”
“Life isn’t about finding yourself it is about creating yourself”
I am a firm believer that kindness, respect and integrity are necessary if we are to find our true happiness.
The world has been chaotic, confusing, scary and overwhelming for the past few years. COVID, world events/conflicts, natural disasters, increase in violence, social media and cyber bullying…. As a result, families can get stuck and feel overwhelmed.
You may wonder:
How do I talk to my kids about these issues?
How do I ease their worries and anxieties?
How do I monitor and manage their social media use?
I can provide you with practical and simple strategies to assist you in solving problems collaboratively as a family. You will learn new skills to work together and to recognize and focus on the things that are working.
Overcome challenges to pave the way for an improved quality of life.
