If you have answered yes to any three of these questions then you need to download my free reports in the resource and disorders tab, buy my book and book me as a speaker for your next event or contact me for free nationwide veteran advocate services.
I'm a part of a nationwide veteran's advocate team. I am more than capable of teaching and inspiring
others on how to overcome traumatic life experiences. I can provide insight on how to intervene and support those who struggle with psychological, emotional pain and inner turmoil.
I’m a survivor and a overcomer of suicidal thoughts and ideations and my mission is to empower
others who have experienced multiple traumas in life to be healed, restored and live again.
1. Brings awareness to the many issues the veteran population face.
2. Empower others to overcome and live again after experiencing multiple traumas in life.
3. Provide solutions and resources to those in need of intervention and education.
I speak from a place of strength and my strength to not commit suicide has been through the supernatural power of God. I lived 20 years undiagnosed with PTSD. I believed in this scripture Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,"
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I was able to defeat and battle the storm that was within me through endurance thus eventually overcoming many of life's challenges and difficulties.
The vicious cycle of suicide can be stopped and eliminated by showing love and care for those
who suffer, taking action to support those that are afflicted, intercessory prayer and counseling,
therapeutic intervention, education and faith in God to strengthen equip and empower you to
not give up and endure to experience healing, restoration and live a life full of prosperity and
abundance for His Glory.
My Dedication is:
To those who have lost their lives by suicide.
To those who struggle with thoughts of suicide.
To those who have made a suicide attempt on their lives.
To those caring for someone who struggles.
To those left behind after a death by suicide.
To those in recovery, and to all that work tirelessly
to prevent suicide in our nation
together we can all make a difference.
