My Story

Recovered from what the medical community described as a severe, rarely diagnosed and difficult to treat mental condition. I refused to accept negative, stigmatizing or limiting LABELS and took a BOLD step toward revolutionary personal transformation. Now my mission is to transform how the world views mental differences. 

Growing up in California, the daughter of successful parents, visible in the community and the entertainment industry, a sister two years younger (now a successful artist and business woman), life appeared status quo. I had piano lessons, guitar, ballet, art (of course, acting lessons) and attended summer camp but inside something made me feel different...

I hid my truth...

 

Hiding who I was influenced my thinking, my behavior and my lifestyle and kept me isolated from others. I covered up by looking OK on the outside. I thought if I got married and left Los Angeles I would have more freedom to be myself. I obtained a Bachelors degree, managed a private exercise studio in New York, ate healthy food, studied meditation and tried different religions. I joined the US Army and served in the medical command for 3 years and attended officer candidate school during dessert storm. 

 

But the secret grew bigger and kept me from getting too close to anyone. Suicide crossed my mind... I had many years of  therapy, graduated with a masters degree in social work and became a licensed therapist. I continued seeking out top professionals in new brain technology. I worked with the best clinicians taking BOLD steps in personal change by using the skills I learned and developing my own transformational tools. However, fear of the stigma about mental challenges kept me silent until I realized that coming out with the secret would change everything and catapult me into freedom! I began to thrive in every area of my life. And you can too! 

 

Believing it is not ok to talk about who we truly are can be a lonely place. But now it is possible to receive help in your own space (via a secure website and audio and or visual technology) from someone who has walked the path and understands mental challenges, mental differences, "Mental Diversity". If you have been labeled with a mental disorder or have characteristics that resemble a mental illness we can reframe the information and use it to move forward in your life. Mental challenges or differences do not have to be a permanent disability. There is no shame in "Mental Diversity".

It is possible to talk about who you are in a safe space where you feel comfortable. It is possible to experience freedom to live as the person you are and the person you want to be.
