SPREAD THE WORD



You are free to create or re-create yourself, your life, your destiny...

​I want to let anyone know who needs to know that there is hope, you can survive and go on to thrive –you don’t have to live in silence carrying this secret shame and guilt that really  is not yours to bear, you didn’t do anything wrong.

Yes some terrible acts have been done to you, that have left you thinking you somehow deserved what happened to you.

​Instead I encourage you to believe that you are a valuable and loveable human being. And even though you may feel afraid, depressed, maybe suffering from PTSD or addicted there is better for you. 

​I am a living example.
