Welcome! Through these pages, I offer concepts for living a passionate, purposeful, and fulfilling life. Having struggled with undiagnosed depression since my teenage years, I hit the darkest period in my early 50s when suicide often seemed the only solution to salve my pain. I was what you may call a high-functioning depressive. In spite of my outward achievements, unless you were a confidante in my innermost circle, you had no idea the inner intense anguish, emptiness, and hopelessness haunting me.
Through my quest to fill the void, I dove deeply into the dark abyss and discovered a little light. Polishing through periodic practice, it began to shine more brightly. Over time, I was transformed and healed. That light had been inside me the whole time, but depression had darkened it to indiscernible.
Through the services and resources on my site, I offer you hope and healing from self-loathing to lasting self-love through:
- Links to resources and blogs on a variety of topics that I found helpful in unwinding underlying causes of depression
- My book, From The Shadows: A Journey of Self-Discovery and Renewal, that chronicles the techniques I applied and the path I followed to heal my depression
- Coaching as a compassionate companion, guiding you from the depth of despair toward a renewed life of purpose and joy, if you are ready to start steps toward self-love.
You are already enough. One day, you will know this, too.
Join me on this journey to ignite and blaze bright your inner light of sparkling self-love.
