Hello, It is wonderful to connect with you! 

I want you to know that whatever life challenge is in front of you now, I believe there is hope!!!! 

My desire is to be able to listen and encourage you as well as help navigate a direction and a process in order to help you reach your goals. I would love the opportunity to foster a relationship of trust in order to help promote a life change that you can feel passionate about!

An Armenian girl, born in Hawaii I have always loved sunshine, water, mountains and any type of physical activity My schooling has been extensively in psychology and exercise science. I hold my Master’s degree in Counseling, have my license in MD and CO and have worked as a mental health provider for the last 12 years (Credentials listed at the end).

As a coach I specialize in taking what I have learned in my years of trainings and schooling and organizing it into a concise, applicable, and customized model for each individual. It can be easy to get overwhelmed with so much information.

My hope is to help light a clear path for you and walk alongside you in your personal journey. I believe that change begins within.

We are all comprised of body, mind, soul and spirit. We cannot just will our way to lasting change, and conversely we cannot just hope and wish our way to change. True lasting change is from the inside out one step at a time.

I love working together with Faithful Workouts because I believe that our spiritual health is so important and beginning to know and feel loved by God will help us value ourselves in order to pursue true lasting change. It will give you the drive you need to continue to stay disciplined even when you do not feel it emotionally.

I have been blessed to have incredible influences in my life helping me navigate through the joys and sorrows in my life. I have been shown love, care, and have been told the truth through others who have cared about me as a whole person. My hope is to do the same for you.

I have always been passionate about fitness and health and have been working professionally in the fitness industry field for the last 16 years as a trainer, strength and conditioning coach and for the last 5 years a strength athlete.

We each have situations in our lives that are both within our control our outside of our control. I believe that the gift I’ve been given by God to steward and share is to be able to help guide others in their growth physically, mentally, and spiritually.

True health is when we are rooted in the Lord and can operate in love and freedom regardless of circumstance. It is reflected in the way we care for ourselves and others. I am excited to hear your story and help you achieve your Goals!!!!!!
