Thank you for stopping here. Thank you for taking the chance on you and me.

I live outside the box. I have never fit into a category. I used to feel judged and my overthinking mind would create negative stories far more elaborate than reality. My self-talk was not strong enough to convince myself differently. 

All that has changed. Through accountability and honest conversation, I found my true strength in self. I found the place where I finally feel good, safe and secure in the choices I make because they are being made from a foundation of strength. I found my voice and use it to get my needs met. 

I am grateful to have had incredible mentors and therapists to help me find myself and would like to share my knowledge and learning with you.
