I received a Master's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and have provided counseling and case management to people with disabilities for 27 years. As the mother of two sons on the autism spectrum, a recovering people-pleaser and perfectionist, and former gray area drinker, I know what it is like to have tried to do everything right. I know how hard it is to care for everyone, look strong and high-achieving on the outside and yet be crumbling on the inside - tired, questioning your self worth, feeling as if you can’t keep up with what society seems to expect.

Then, in 2013, I received a breast cancer diagnosis. Something had to give. I learned to slow down, stop using alcohol to numb my anxiety and escape the pressures of life. I learned to be more present, set boundaries and live a more authentic life. I found the resources I needed to take practical, often simple, steps each day to a healthier, more well balanced, more present and joyful life.
