My Mission

My mission is to educate, inspire, and empower individuals with mental health conditions and their loved ones. It took me many years to accept that I had a mental illness. I feared the stigma so much I chose to suffer in shame and silence.  Now I proudly share my story at hospitals and partial programs, facilitate weekly support groups, and teach mental health classes through The National Alliance on Mental Illness. For information on NAMI-LV peer support group http://www.nami-lv.org/nami-lehigh-valley-support-groups/nami-connections-support-group/

On this site, I share my own journey, the process of my recovery, and strategies I use to stay well and live my best life. You will also find a variety of mental health services and resources available to help those with mental illness and their loved ones. My goal is to give hope to others with mental disorders and help them in their own recovery.
