Thank you for allowing me to walk with you, through your journey of healing and wellness.
I am a survivor of unhealthy relationships, former feelings of low self-esteem, a life-threatening auto accident, PTSD and an undying need to please others.
I stayed in a marriage for over 30 years that was not healthy or satisfying for me. I had issues of not being close to my mother and feeling that we would never reach a point of a healthy and happy mother-daughter relationship. My relationship with my children was suffering, and I was unable to figure out how to get it back to where I thought I should be. There were so many feelings and thoughts of inadequacy --- and just feeling there had to be more to life than what I had.
I was struggling to figure out how to get some level of happiness.
I was raised as a believer of Christ (although I respect all faiths and belief systems). I was taught to pray, however, even though I was praying it just seemed that things weren’t coming together for me. I was so unhappy, and things were spiraling out of control.
In an effort to regain and restart, I moved to DC to help my oldest daughter with the birth of her first child. Then, I was involved in a serious, life-threatening automobile accident. A firetruck hit me from the front passenger side, which left me alive but completely helpless. I was unable to do much of anything. But I was still able to talk and walk with a foot boot and a neck brace, however, the PTSD from the accident was just starting.
I again went back to what I was used to --- and that was my husband. Despite so many promises of change and that things would get better, they just weren’t getting any better for me. I again began truly praying and seeking answers from my creator. I decided to surrender to His will and guidance.
Little did I know everything was on the brink of change.
That was all I had to do. I was being stripped away of the old and being strengthened for my purpose.
I was led to the ARCS and to my Professor. I knew that I had to embark on this opportunity for growth and change, so I enrolled into the CARC certification program.
The ARCS Program was just what I needed. I was challenged and the process broke me away from my old patterns, while preparing me to walk through my journey of true healing, recovery and wellness.
Wow --- how things can change in such a short time when you step out on faith.
I believe in this program as a vehicle for healing, helping and understanding of both self and others. With the feeling of being truly blessed, I am looking forward to serving in this opportunity to help you with you journey to healing, recovery and wellness.
