Welcome to my site! I'm so grateful you're here, and I'm excited to share my experiences.

Addiction does not discriminate. I know. As an educated, athletic single mom and highly functional registered nurse, I still found myself gripped by addictions to opiates and alcohol in my early 30's. Desperately searching to find a way out of the dark, I tried various treatments, but struggled to find one that resonated with my values. Unwilling to settle or subscribe to a program that wasn’t meaningful in my life, my search led me to lasting recovery through a shift in the way I relate to my thoughts and myself. I came to understand that the substances aren't the problem - they are a coping mechanism that inevitably quit working  - not to mention caused some severe consequences in my life! I used drugs and alcohol to numb, escape and avoid situations that felt too painful, scary or uncomfortable to deal with.

I experienced a significant transformation when I started practicing mindfulness,  and learned how to make healthier choices one breath, and one moment at a time. Since then, I've been consistently moving towards a life of Radical Self Love!

My recovery journey started years ago, and I've been officially "Sober Out Loud" since May 2016 - advocating, writing, and connecting with a purpose!

I look forward to connecting with you on your journey - Cheers & Gratitude!
