Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope- MLK We work hard to achieve our dreams only to be knocked down. Healthy relationships are seemingly impossible to obtain in a social media-driven world of high expectations. We want to be cared for and we desire to obtain healthy and secure connections. Many of us battle negative inner voices or outside influences seeking control over our joy and happiness. Many feel alone and isolated, and it can be hard to know who can one trust. I would be honored to be apart of your story and to help build your dreams of love and acceptance to come true, starting first with you loving you!
