My Recovery Story

My recovery journey was not linear, easy, or fair! Yet, by radically accepting different modalities of therapy, and wraparound services, and reclaiming my identity- I have a wonderful life worth living.

My Motivation To Help

It was when I humbled myself enough to acknowledge the validity and wisdom from others' lived experiences that I realized I wasn't alone and my pain was not unique. This is why I facilitate, hold space for others, and assist in coordinating resources. Constantly being labeled as "strong," "resilient," and "courageous" is very, very tiring. Let's be honest, compassionate, and vulnerable.
