About Me

I am an older adult who has lived through my own journey through mental illnesses to being mentally healthy the past 20 years. One of my foundational worldviews is that when I, or anyone else, is "stuck" in life there is always a way to move through the hardship. This movement through the obstacles can be quite messy. But, with practice and grace it becomes easier.
