Greetings and Welcome

HEADSHOT_DAVA_edited.jpg

I am truly glad that whatever path you may be on, you found your way here. I am a Certified Mental Health Coach specializing in trauma, sobriety, harm reduction,

de-programming, disordered eating, spirituality, and relationships. I'd love to talk to you more about the benefits of coaching and and the ways in which I work.  I encourage you to poke around my site and see if anything resonates with you. If it does, I'd be happy to speak further about how I may assist you. Thanks for visiting.

Is Mental Health Coaching like a Life Coach?

Yes and No. Although there are some similarities in the both types of coaching encourage people to be the best possible versions of themselves traditional life coaches may not be trauma informed and might actually cause more harm than they do good. I treat all of my clients with the utmost respect and dignity and always meet you where you are. A lot of "Life Coaches" claim to have the answer, or claim that they can "fix" what the problem is. I believe that true healing only comes from within and that YOU are your best healer. I work with you at your pace to help you understand all the ways this may be possible. Life Coaches may not be trauma informed which can be problematic in the solutions or suggestions they may come up with to move you forward. We all have trauma, and it is more often than not the driving, unseen force that runs our daily lives. Only when it is safe to do so, and when the time is right, we can work collaboratively to establish tools in dealing with life. 

The wound is the place where the light enters you.
