About 

Me

 

My path has been amazing and challenging and all the in between and on either side stuff, ups, downs, highs, lows...and I am still standing, and flourishing. Though at times I thought it would not end well at all, yes I had my doubts.

 

A loner at school, always feeling I was somehow different, less than, my family was not a loving family, collateral damage in my parents divorce at age ten, the military at seventeen, with no interpersonal and coping skills, no positive role models as a young adult, it was tough.

 

After a very bad start to my adult life, doing everything that was negative, literally trying to destroy myself at times, I can only liken it to observing life through a very dirty window, just disconnected images and sounds. Very gradually I started noticing certain people who actually cared about me, cared for my opinion, wanted nothing from me, and above all, held a safe supportive space for me to experience the positive change I wanted.

Allow me to hold that safe supportive space for you, as we know, everybody's path and process is different, how will yours be? Take a moment to reflect on that...
