Through my writing, I research and report about the latest science, health, and spiritual avenues for healing with my readers. In this process, it is my wish that kindred spirits are inspired to follow a journey of healing that teaches us to make life decisions based on facts, not on fear.

It is my honor to share with you the information that the Universe brings into my life. Additionally, my purpose for writing is so that others might know that they are not alone and that there is always hope.

It was unknown until the diagnosis at 62 years of age, that I lived with PTSS since the age of six when my world went dark. At last, after decades of searching for answers about why I felt and reacted so differently from a lot of people around me, I finally found treatable answers.

After decades and a plethora of therapeutic settings with few positive results, the therapist who correctly diagnosed me after all these years also introduced me to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment. From the first session, I found relief from stress. There is no easy answer for PTSS but EMDR gave me a new life. That new lease on life was most welcome as I had given up hope.

However, I was wrong. There is always hope and I am living proof of that fact. Now, I wholeheartedly recommend the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment to anyone who seeks relief from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Please, Come & Sit by Me
