I am a mostly eccentric, sometimes wise-crack, always passionate, redheaded gal. I love to learn, I love to write, and I love to create.

I lived a good chunk of my life with a deep sense of wanting others to know their worth while secretly and anxiously wondering about my own. When I finally entered therapy, it changed my life. Knowing why I do what I do and why I am how I am has helped me immensely, and having a fantastic guide has made all the difference in the world. I have learned there are names for the chaos inside this maze of a mind of mine: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, and Depression. My life now is a whirlwind of therapy, re-learning to live, and loving my beautiful wife and amazing family and friends. Most importantly, learning to love myself.

I am a firm believer in the healing power and strength that is found in community and so that is why I share about my trials, temptations, and triumphs….because I have found great hope in what others have shared.
