I have three passions: music, writing and sharing my story of recovery from mental illness. My greatest wish is to communicate my story through the writing of this book and inspirational workshops. At the age of sixteen, I dreamed of going to college and getting a degree in music education and of becoming a concert pianist. Instead, I dealt with the demons of abuse and Adult child of an alcoholic issues. These dual situations culminated in a deepening depression, psychotic episodes and anxiety disorder.

My life was quickly crumbling into an abysmal downward spiral, threatening my very existence. Due to the intervention of a team of mental health experts as well as medical and alternative healers, I’ve managed to recover and I’m eager to share my story in written form and in inspirational seminars. God bless all who have been mentally ill and God bless all who serve as healers.
