I live a life of

Joy & Freedom!

I often call myself a "grateful alcoholic - not because I'm an alcoholic -
but because of all the things I've learned in recovery.

I've rediscovered my true self, gathered a full tool box of life skills and found my purpose.

I'm also the happiest and most content I've been in my life.

And I want you to feel the same way - happy, joyful and free. Free from depression, from anxiety, from addiction and especially from fear.

That's why I went back to school for certification in Life Coaching and Mastery certification in Transformationalal Coach - so I would have the skills to help.

I'm also dedicated to recovering  loudly - writing and speaking - to help stop the shame and stigma of addiction/alcoholism and to hopefully stop others from dying quietly.

Life didn't get better. I got better at life!

My mission is to empower individuals struggling with addictions or mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety, by fostering an understanding of how their thoughts and beliefs influence their actions.

Through empowerment and the rediscovery of their true essence, I aim to support individuals on their journey towards healing and self-actualization.


My vision is to cultivate a society where individuals are equipped with the knowledge and tools to address the root causes of addiction and mental health challenges. By educating the public that drugs and alcohol are not the problem, but rather symptoms of underlying traumas and inadequate coping skills, I envision a community where holistic healing and support are accessible to all.
