We all carry within us a dream, a purpose, a strength that flows, like water through our veins and every part of our being. It even flows through fear, pain, disappointment and all sorts of perceived failure. It gives meaning to life. It heals. It inspires. DreamWell LLC was born out of my dream to facilitate healing and to positively impact the lives of others. I hope to empower and support you in addressing the issues that have interrupted the flow of your personal and professional lives...your dreams.
Over the past 10 years I have supported hundreds of people facing various mental and physical limitations to overcome them and focus more on realizing their highest potential. My expertise in disabilities significantly broadens my understanding of persons facing a variety of issues.
In practice, I am a mental health professional with a unique specialty in disabilities. If you are experiencing mental or physical limitations that are significantly disabling to you and your family, you are familiar to me. You will be received with compassion and understanding.
