Life is a journey filled with choice points.
Personal evolution is the process of
learning to make
Each day, we make multiple Life Choices. Most are made without conscious thought, yet, each choice has the potential of altering our journey.
Each choice we make either moves us toward our desired state of being or creates a detour.
Present moment awareness allows us to make conscious Life Choices on a more consistent basis. As a facilitator of Life Choices my goal is to support
you in becoming aware of your choices by learning to identify your “choice points.”
Using present moment awareness and a variety of therapeutic interventions and
techniques, I assist you in identifying the choice points of your past
and the conscious or unconscious choices that led you to your current state of being. You learn to practice becoming aware of your current choice points and develop
methods for making conscious choices in the future.
By identifying the goals and objectives of your process we will co-create your treatment plan, which becomes your roadmap for self-discovery. We will
also identify interventions that meet your needs and support your process.
I am a facilitator of evolution: self-discovery, growth and learning,
personal empowerment and healing in myself and others
