  • Happiness is the Mission

    You are the Hero

    As a behavioral health therapist, I came to realize that people wanted more than just to resolve the problems we discussed.


    They wanted to be happy. But anxiety can prevent us from feeling happy.


    I decided to make Happiness the focus of my work.


    If you have ever been confused or uncertain about how to feel better, join me in the mission of growing your personal happiness.


    Together, we grow the foundation of happiness for the world. One person at a time.
