“Recovery from anything is ongoing. It is a journey, and it is all about what road we choose to travel. There are times when we travel in the darkness and there are times when we hit a roadblock. We must remember that as we remain focused, as we remain in faith, as we remain determined, the sun will shine the light on us once again so we may continue on our way home. For me, I chose the road less travelled, yet have never lost my way.
It is said that everyone loves a comeback story. This is especially true for the woman who came back from a life of Substance Use Disorder and co-occurring disorders. The woman with an inspirational story to share that offers hope to others struggling with this disease. A woman that nearly died of this disease in early 2013, but made a comeback.
On April 2, 2013, I got ready for bed and in a moment where I had some clarity, I dropped to my knees and asked the Universe/God/Spirit to please help me save my life. I said, “God/Universe/Spirit, if you show me the way out of this, I will devote my life to any path you put before me.”
I have always felt a deep spiritual connection to the Universe through music and said to the Universe at the end of my prayer, “In the next song on the radio, please give me a sign that you are with me.” I sat down on the edge of my bed, turned on the radio, and the first song to play was “Jesus, Take the Wheel.” The words touched my heart, and I became so emotional: “Jesus, take the wheel, take it from my hands. I can’t do this on my own. I’m letting go… So give me one more chance. Save me from this road I’m on. Jesus, take the wheel.”
I went to bed knowing that I would soon be given specific guidance from the Universe that would ultimately save my life. I woke up the next morning and I heard a strong intuitive voice say to me, “Call for help. It is time.” I heard this voice tell me that “everything is going to be alright.” I have been listening to that voice ever since.
April 3, 2013 was the day that my life was saved by the grace of God.”
NOTE PLEASE!!!!! I am delighted to announce that…
Coming in December, 2021…my book,
WRITE PRAY RECOVER:A JOURNEY TO WELLNESS THROUGH SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS AND SELF CARE! will be published!
I am so excited to share this labor of love with you based upon my journey of lifelong prescription drug addiction, and my self created WELLNESS APPROACH TO RECOVERY PROGRAM! I’m in my 9th year of recovery, and through my program, my training and education in Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder along with my lived experience, my private practice as a holistic health practitioner, mental health consultant/counselor and recovery specialist, my speaking engagements, my blogs, and my holistic lifestyle using natural and organic solutions, I serve others who ask for my guidance in recovery. I also work as part of the RECOVERY TEAM, chosen by the patient/clients from the traditional medical community.
Inherently, each of us knows what we need to heal from the inside out. I am just the “peer professional guide.” We explore together, we learn together, we grow together and we stand in our power through spiritual solutions and self care practices, and if the patient/client requests a traditional medical professional as a part of the team, we work alongside each other harmoniously to support the patient/client.
For information on my holistic health practice, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and write “Recovery Support” in the subject line.
I am offering through June 30, 2021, a free holistic health consultation!

“Self care is the actions that we take to achieve wellness and wellness is where we stand in our power!”
