I seriously considered suicide twice - 16 and again at 46. When I finally woke up and became aware of my family's destructive relationship patterns and how I was repeating them, my healing journey began.
You can't teach what you don't know, and you can't change what you're not aware of. My passion now is sharing with everyone the path I took and the resources I used to heal.
Despite the mental health issues I had, I held on tightly to one goal...to make sure my children did NOT grow up IN the same destructive way I did. I was determined to do the OPPOSITE of what my parents and ancestors did...make sure my children felt seen, validated and loved for who they naturally are.
I was determined - to give my children a childhood that they won't have to spend the rest of their lives recovering from.
I would like to be the hopeful light for others that I needed during my darkest moments.
