Capable of speaking at secular, non christian events. Over the course of my 15 year career, I have been guiding and empowering individuals on the most sensitive and vital topics of the human condition with unwavering dedication. I now aim to shed light on the profound impact of trauma, addiction, mental health issues, and adverse childhood experiences on all of our lives, and the role that faith can play in our healing.
Drawing from a wealth of knowledge and personal experiences, I share invaluable insights into the paths of recovery and healing, while breaking down scripture in a way that all can understand. Through my talks, I not only hope to inspire those struggling to embark on their own journeys of recovery, but also to equipped those around them to better stand with them to offer the necessary tools to extend a helping hand to others in their pursuit of renewal while walking alongside Jesus.
I believe that these are problems for all of us in society and we need to be educated, equipped and empowered to become a more empathetic and loving society revealing the heart of the Father.
My unwavering commitment to spreading awareness of the Love of God and fostering resilience in the face of adversity continues to be the driving force behind my passion for publicly speaking on these topics.
