I am a fellow traveler living the life experience. I have lost my way many times. I continue to discover new and creative ways to be myself.
Clinical Social Worker in Austin, TX
I have been in personal long-term recovery since June 7, 1993. I continue to show up for my life on a daily basis and challenger myself to life fully without the use of mind/body altering substances. I support harm reduction, medication management, abstinence, and any process that moves a person toward wellness and positive self-awareness.
When I realized my own judgment, perfectionism, and negative self view where crippling my ability to find meaning in my life I began to change from within and that has made all the difference. I can practice my progress of daily living and free myself from false ideals of perfection. Change is the ever unfolding of the living experience. The more aware and accepting I become the more freedom I embrace.
Depression can be a serious, debilitating medical condition that diminishes one's ability to experience life in a balanced and manageable way. I was diagnosed with clinical depression in the early stages of my recovery process and with the help of proper medication, lifestyle changes, and self-care I live a life that has meaning and purpose for me. No one has to walk alone through recovery and change. Let me walk with you as you discover who you are meant to be.
