Not only have I overcome some of these same issues, my training as a marriage & family therapist and life coach gives me the skills to help others get out from the weight of guilt when they decide to move their needs from the back burner to the front.

I look forward to reserving “special “ time for myself thanks to Gladys,’ teachings. I’ve developed insights that help me now put new pieces of knowledge into practice
