My work and daily actions in this moment are geared towards peer support, mental health and addictions, psychology and philosophy, community volunteering and further education.
I enjoy giving back to my immediate community by volunteering and service to others. Good things happen when I`m around! I am blessed with this opportunity to pay it forward, making positive change in my life and to the world around me. I am thankful for each day and the opportunity to live life on life's terms. I am grateful for the ability to be present, encourage and walk with others as they gain personal awareness of mental, emotional and spiritual roadblocks of habitual, learned unconscious behaviors that negatively affect their lives and the world around them. This resultant from traumatic experiences, abuse or rigid shame and fear-based core beliefs instilled from the formative years of development by family and cultural influences.
