I grew up in a dysfunctional family and developed my own way of living by using my perspective of what I believed was the right way to cope with the dysfunction in my life. I used drugs and alcohol to fit in and remove my anxiety. I had a learning disability, so I cheated from 3rd grade to 9th grade then just dropped out.
From the ages of 15-25, I developed an addiction that led me to destroy my relationships and lose jobs. When I was starting to feel a sense of motivation to change, my mother (a single mother) developed cancer and lost her job which left us in poverty. This took me down a path of self-destruction that led me to the point of attempting to end my life.
20+ seizures later as I was laying in a puddle of blood, tears, and vomit and my past secrets were haunting me. I had hit rock bottom. I needed to heal from the sexual abuse I'd experienced as a child and teenager.
The moment that changed my life was on October 22nd, 2017. I experienced a spiritual awakening that started my journey of self-discovery.
Since then I have 3+ years sober, am a college graduate with a Masters in Theology, am a Substance Abuse/Mental Health Counselor, I'm in a healthy relationship...the list of blessings goes on! I've helped thousands of people in the world find hope in their suffering.
Now I am giving back what I learned in my healing.
