Accepting New Connections
We didn't choose this path, but we don't have to walk it alone. For most of my life I allowed my trauma to define me but living in darkness isn't living, it's just surviving. I've rebuilt myself from the ground up and learned to live rather than just survive. It's an incredible moment when the shadows start to recede and you get that first glimpse of all you are and what you are capable of. I'd be honored to walk beside you on that journey.
Willing to help others find local resources
Live in Western PA with my wife and two dogs. Certified in 2017 by the PA Certification board, recertified in 2021. Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. In active recovery since 2016.
My Recovery Story
It's a daily battle. It never fully goes away but when you learn to manage it doors open to you that you never thought possible. I love my life now and would not change a thing.
My Motivation To Help
Lived experience in both illness and recovery. I've been in the darkness and fought tooth and nail to find the light. Helping others along that path is all I want to do.
