About Me.

I am called and anointed by God for "soul care" to women.  I am passionate about helping women from all backgrounds develop a personal and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ.  My desire is to empower women to overcome and manage their fears by equipping women with practical and powerful strategies I have used to bring me calm, and relieve stress and anxiety so that I improve my well-being and improve my relationships.  The opportunity to share soul care brings me great joy!  I believe wholeheartedly

in the truth in God's Word.  I inspire and empower women for significant change with God's love by encouraging them to embrace a new perspective on their situation and life by viewing the truth in God's Word.  I have received grace upon grace therefore, my mission is to share with others my testimony of God's amazing love and forgiveness.  The overflow of God's grace and love is spread to women for healing and wholeness. 

I have had the pleasure of leading, serving, and empowering women in the roles of Bible study leadership, training, facilitation, mentorship, and coaching in my local church for over 13 years.  This contribution is where the "Be Still and Know that I am God" design for women was birthed.  The name has changed and is now a Faith-Based coaching service that continues to serve, love, and witness profound healing and change in women.

I have also served eight years as a board member of Ladies of Virtuous Excellence, Inc., a non-profit organization, with a mission to mentor and empower women through God's Word.  Annual retreats were planned and facilitated for women to become rejuvenated, revived, and replenished in their Faith.

I live in the Tampa Bay area with my loving and supportive husband of 23 years and two sons.  I currently offer Faith-Based In-Person and Virtual coaching services to clients anywhere in the United States.

My Approach.

I have come to realize over the past 13 years in ministry leadership, training, mentorship, and coaching that the power and potential to create a life of wellness and wholeness lies within yourself.  By the power of the Holy Spirit, I guide and coach women to navigate pathways to positive thinking & behaving and receive a new identity in Jesus Christ. I coach by sharing the truth of God's Word in a non-judgmental and loving way.  I believe the love of God brings salvation, healing and freedom.

The proven methodology of Be Still My Soul integrates Inspirational Speaking, Positive Affirmations, Scripture Declarations, Gratitude Journaling, therapeutic coloring, Devotionals, Self-Discovery & Self-Awareness activities, Personal & Reflective Meditation, and Guided breathing & stretching exercises to develop your wellness.


I empower women to successfully achieve goals by asking the right questions, in doing so, both of us will gather awareness and insights.  I will engage creatively with questions and journaling that will unlock your inner soul and remove roadblocks to reveal your inner power and wisdom. 

Yes, I work along with a licensed mental health therapist to achieve amazing results. Full disclosure is preferred and necessary. We have completely different roles, however, we complement each other for your well-being.

My Credentials.

I love to learn and increase my knowledge to better help  people.  My passion is to facilitate a more strategic, successful and comprehensive approach in helping women succeed, so I earned a Certification to became a Board Certified Mental Health Coach. 


I have received extensive training through Light University, a partner with the International Board of Christian Care (IBCC).  I have joined with qualified mental health professionals, pastors, chaplains, paraprofessionals and lay counseling ministry leaders to provide mental health services. The certification equipped me with practical and fundamental theories, principles, practices and skills of mental health coaching.

The IBCC's credentials set the standard of excellence and integrity in the helping professions.  The in-depth practical and spiritual education has propelled my services to help women make significant change to discover love, peace, joy and clarity to their identity.  With a new identity and new perspective you can better manage and achieve personal and professional goals.

My next endeavor is to become certified in Emotional Intelligence (EQ) to improve my coaching services. I currently integrate a few principles of EQ to help identify and regulate emotions and understand the motions of others.


I am not a licensed therapist, and cannot diagnose and treat mental and behavioral health disorders, however, I do offer psychotherapy in the form of cognitive therapeutic services.  I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever us true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things.  And the God of peace will be with you. 

                                      Philippians 4:8-9

Paul is summarizing his message from verses two thru seven to inspire hope with instruction not to mediate

on problems, people or the past but to meditate on everything optimistic, helpful, positive, encouraging and

has biblical truths and be careful to exclude everything that is not.  This wisdom, when learned and practiced

implodes radical change in every area of your life!

Be Still My Soul provides practical and spiritual exercises to empower you to be

self-aware of your thoughts, and therefore harnessing the power to control them!
