Not everyone takes the chance and believes in themselves enough to start over each, and every day.

In fact, nearly, 21 million Americans have at least one addiction. And, yet only 10% receive treatment...or give themselves the opportunity to start over.  Not believing that every day's a start-over day is contributing to drug overdose deaths that have more than tripled since 1990. And, the "not my issue so it doesn't exist" attitude, means we turn a blind eye to the exorbitant number of people who have died from this epidemic in the past 32 years.

I'm here to have a conversation, from the stage into your heart and soul that will inspire you to:

Set realistic goals to heal, what you think can't be healed. Shift your limiting mindset and muster up the confidence that seems elusive. Release yourself that has bullied you into submission that you are your addiction, showing you that you aren’t. Activate the art to reinvention, one positive moment at a time

It's time to dream again. To capture the power of the daily start over. It’s never too late, ever.

Après une addiction, les gens ont souvent des difficultés à trouver leur voix et à définir des limites claires. Croyez-moi, je suis passé par là. Au fil des années, j’ai appris qu’en faisant preuve de courage, nous sommes capables de changer notre histoire. Avec l’amour, nous pouvons trouver la force de faire face à nos difficultés et d’apprendre à vivre avec elles. Il ne faut pas vivre en essayant de les cacher. En tant qu’ancien toxicomane, chaque jour, je tâche de me rappeler que nous avons le choix de tout recommencer, d’aller de l’avant avec patience et amour pour nous-mêmes. Au cœur de mon discours, je m’efforce de vous aider à voir les choses sous un nouvel angle, vous pourrez m’écouter partager les difficultés que j’ai dû traverser et les découvertes que j’ai faites le long de mon parcours. Mon but est de vous inspirer à trouver la joie et fixer des objectifs réalistes lors de votre guérison, pour votre nouveau départ. Pour vous aider à réaliser que vous pouvez faire ce changement, il est temps pour vous de recommencer à respirer et à vivre. Vous en êtes capable.
