Working through trauma

Trauma is a silent killer.
It is a killer of hope ..
… a killer of dreams.
… a killer or relationships
… a killer of self-worth
As a survivor of trauma, I’m learning how to reclaim my remaining years and choose how I want to live them.
In the process, I fall and fail. Yet, I have made a decision to not stay down. I refuse to let the narrative of my trauma define me for the rest of my life.
So today I stand….
…. Owning my strengths…
…. Owning my weakness…
…. Owning this canvas called life that was gifted to me by God….
……. And I’m ready to turn this mess into a piece of art….

I am a self-awareness coach (coach for humans), life strategist, blogger and speaker. I’ve spent over 21 years mentoring individuals in life skills, career transitions, relationships, and life recovery. My resume includes pastoral care, behavioral health, and higher education. From an early age, I realized that God created me to bring hope, healing and encouragement to others. I am currently living out my purpose by creating a space where people can rediscover and become all that they were created to be. I currently live in the beautiful state of Arizona with my wife, two dogs, and an antique piano whom I call, “Betty.”
