” You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness” – Jonathan Safran Foer

Hunter S. Thompson once posed this question- ” So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed? ”

Readers, if you can connect these two quotes as they pertain to your own life, you may find that you are happier than you think. You may conversely find that you have some living to get on with. Powerful words these men spoke, if you can apply them in a practical way to your life. Be well.

Social Worker- Mental Health, Addictions, and Behavioral health- Leadership Educator-, Juvenile Justice. A variety of coaching. I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.
