With that being said, while education and certification is essential it is not the only piece. So if you are reading my educational background and asking yourself: “BUT IS THIS ENOUGH TO GET ME/MY CLIENTS WHERE I/WE WANT TO GO??”
Knowledge does not equal behavior change. So just as “knowing what to do” isn’t usually enough for us to create lasting change in our lives, I am thrilled to assure you that I utilize much more than just textbook knowledge. My life has been one rich of challenging, yet growth building experiences, which I vigorously tapped into while building my signature transformation programs, products and services. It is incredibly important to me that the individuals I work with receive tools and techniques that have practical and realistic application rather than theory only. I never ask a client to go where I have not been before, am willing to go now, or willing to explore in the future.
Often when we are struggling the number one thing that can often makes us feel alone, is when we feel like no one understands what we are going through. This also makes it harder to see a way out of our pain.
“The GREATEST ASSET I bring to the table is what no text book can teach- I bring raw knowledge and personal self mastery of a plethora of struggles, weaknesses, bad habits, addictions, weight & health issues, spiritual awakening, mental health treatment and more! I am always willing to tap into this authentic life experience, and even share verbally, my successes and failures, what I have learned from them, and the tools I utilized to overcome them. I work every day towards improving myself upon my journey, and never cease efforts towards building and maintaining my dream life…it would bring me great joy to help you or your client do the same!”
