I struggled through debilitating clinical depression for as long as I can remember. From early childhood, I grappled with feeling unlovable, unlucky, and inadequate. I dealt with this mostly silently through my teens. In my first year of college, I realized that maybe there was a different way to look at life and that is when my journey to recover began. From college into early adulthood, I always felt like if I could just “figure it out” and “get it together” like so many suggested, I would be alright. I would feel better and everything would change.
Finally, in 2009 the pressure and hopelessness became too much and I attempted suicide because of it. I’d truly hit my rock bottom and the only way to go from there was up.
Through work and on purpose effort, I learned the techniques that brought me out of that dark and hopeless place. I learned how to free myself from the grips of old programming. And the way there was surprising. It wasn't just all about changing my thought patterns and my perspectives. It was so much more. It wasn't just about loving myself more in an elusive, abstract way.
Tangible, physical practices and techniques helped me make the switches I needed and wanted to make. When I began doing specific things that made me feel better on one level, it amazed me to see how it carried over into the rest of my life. I started to see the connections and realize just how intertwined it all was.
And that's why I'm here. I'm here to show you that it’s so very possible to turn it around and feel whole. It takes work, but it’s work you can do and it’s work that you might even enjoy doing.
I’m here to shine the light and lead the way...
