Thriving in Recovery
As a young college student, I realized I wanted to help people through the art of theater and pursued a degree in Theatre Education. But by the time I graduated, I was in desperate need of help myself. For the next twenty years, I struggled and fought, and won and lost, an ongoing battle to find a way to survive the unhealthy forces inside of me. Theater was left far behind me in a wake of lost dreams and hopes.
Today, to my amazement, I am doing exactly what I set out to do all those years ago. I didn’t even really mean to end up here, but somehow my very crazy, divergent path has led me to this precise combination of passion and work. Today, I help people of all kinds find a path to healing, growth, and connection through theater, storytelling, and the guiding principles of recovery coaching. Today, I know I’m doing what I was always meant to do.
"What a great experience I have had these last two days in the company of amazing, gifted, transformed individuals. Thank you both for this wonderful moment in time."
