Mission Statement

Inspiring people to Show Up, Take Charge, Live Free, and Be the One.

Be the One’s mission is to help people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations, show up, have real conversations, liberate themselves, and create the life they’ve wanted. Be the One inspires people to show up, express what matters most, and embody their truth with love, courage, and integrity.

I wanted to share with you a little bit about me. My passion for helping others began at a very early age. I always knew that no matter what I did, I wanted to help others. Once I knew that such a profession existed, I knew this was my goal in life.

In August of 1992, I began my first job as a mental health professional in a residential women’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. Since then, I have worked in a many settings and with so many clients from all walks of life. I have worked for inpatient, outpatient, residential, managed care, and private practices, which included working with patients with substance abuse issues, mood disorders, severe and persistent mental illnesses, traumas, and LGBTQ issues.

I recently wrote and published #IsHeHereYet : Being The Person You Want To Be With, where I take you on a raw, humorous, and thought-provoking journey of the quest for love in a modern society where being single is a perceived epidemic. I continue to write and will be announcing and launching books in the future.

If you have any questions, suggestions, topics you want covered, or partnership desires, please reach out to me below.
