As a Coach and therapist, I help clients reduce anxiety by using positive coping techniques and breaking down tasks into more manageable goals. Clients have benefited from my experience in creating and managing their daily schedules, identifying potential jobs and obtaining them, and increasing their social networks. Some of my favorite things are nature, animals, and water sports. My fondness for animals began as a child when I found stray dogs and cats in my neighborhood and then worked to find them new homes. Now that I have my own home, I have enjoyed learning about and gardening with plants and flowers that attract native birds. I am especially interested in hummingbirds and woodpeckers! I find the ocean and other large bodies of water very calming and enjoy waterskiing and jet skiing when on vacation.
