Certified School Social Worker

I believe everyone deserves a beautiful, unpredictable, and exciting life – one full of appreciation and achievement. Unique personal and professional goals feed life’s purpose; however, unplanned experiences may cause disruptions in routines and relationships, requiring a shift in our thinking. Together, we will discuss the hows and whys of accepting the unexpected, welcoming a reintroduction to yourself, and exploring current and past expectations. Through guided feedback and supportive reflection, we will delve into understanding unfamiliar perspectives, identifying individual strengths, and begin developing realistic objectives focused on creating and maintaining a balanced life.
