My passion is helping others who are in pain. Especially those who label themselves as 'depressed' or 'anxious'.
After years of reading and researching, it is clear to me that there is no truth to the widely held belief that a chemical imbalance in the brain causes depression. (See Links page)
The symptoms are very real, I know, but the cause does not lie with genetics or brain chemical imbalances, and there IS something that you can do about it.
What qualifies me to help you? I suffered from depression for over 30 years, sometimes deeply suicidal, most times just barely functioning, always struggling and using lots of energy to hide it.
I tried lots of different ways to try to feel differently. Nothing seemed to work for long, if at all. And then, something happened that changed everything.
My mother died suddenly, unexpectedly. She killed herself after battling depression silently for most of her life.
This significantly painful and emotional event was the powerful motivator which inspired me to heal myself and avoid a similar destiny to my mother. In a few short months I completely turned my life around, taking full responsibility for my own recovery. I am now 100% free of depression and enjoying every aspect of my life, including the difficult ones.
