One year has passed since I found out I am positive, even now I can't get over the fact that you gave me this disease. I was once told that in order to move forward you need to forgive but in a situation like this I don't have any reason to forgive the coward that attempted to ruin my life. I understand now why you said no one would want me after you, because you tainted me. I don't like the fact that I can't forget you, to me its not fair that you are safe where no one can get you. In my mind you should get what you deserve, which is to stay in jail until you die. You should not be allowed to be apart of society, or at least not canadas. But according to laws you will onlu get maybe 5 years and to me that will never be good enough. Words honestly cannot describe the hurt, hate, and anger I feel towards you. I have to deal with all these crazy emotions I have and learn to deal with the past. I know exactly why you never told me or at least I think I do. If people or my family and close friends would have found out what you were doing to me it probably would have gotten you hurt or worse…killed. Not only did you hurt me but many other people who love and care about me. Honestly the safest place for you may very well be jail…well for right now. I hate that I have all these should've, could've and would've thoughts. I know I can't change the past, but it will always be apart of me, that kinda helps me deal with the present. I do what I have to in order to make sure I'm healthy, because I come first. I will never forhive you and you can bet I will never forget the worthless, self-centred person that did this to me. Did you keep me around because you knew eventually you would get busted? Was it the fact that you had me wrapped around your finger and thought I didn't have the strength to leave you? You know when I first found out I could'nt figure out who it was but something kept me wondering about you. I had hoped it was a one night stand, and not someone I had trusted and thought cared about me. But after I had found out it was you I knew exactly what my chances were especially when I looked back at our relationship. I thought I was smart and could never get screwed over like this but unfortunately I was wrong. I learned that I wasn't invincible and felt stupid because I should've listened to everyone that tried to tell me something wasn't right with you, but then again I was in love. I knew you were messed up but I thought it was your mind not HIV. Thanks to you the person I thought I was is dead and I no longer want anything to do with society, but I need to create a new me. I can try to understand what you went through when you found out but I can't understand how you could be so reckless. Spreading HIV should be at the top of the pole with murder but because science has came so far thats its not considered a death sentence anymore. Maybe you never payed much attention to the resources and information but the disease is manageable if you really care about your health. Just because someone screwed you does not give you the right to do it to anyone else. I really do hope that when everything is done and you serve your sentence that you hurt like you have hurt so many other people. It's the law to tell people your status, either you be honest about it or don't deal with people you know you might infect and hurt. Growing up I was taught you think before you act, every action has consequences and you hit the motherload. You should have done the right thing instead of being an idiot! There is so much help out there that there isn't any reason to screw up or hang on to all the "grief" that comes with having HIV. Its so hard to ask for help and believe me I know but its always there waiting. It took me 9 months before I broke, because after I found out I went numb and then exploded which is not good for me or my health. This disease will kill you if you let it and so will the memories but you do to others what you want done to you. Please tell me what you think!

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here.

These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think".......By A.A. Milne. It is my deepest desire to actively assist those in need of support through life's challenges. I am eager to work with those experiencing a crisis, conflict, or seemingly unmanageable change in the course of life's events. I discretely assist individuals in finding solutions to some of the more challenging issues in life. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults in addition to people experiencing life with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. I have many years of experience as an educator, and as a clinical therapist working with people with special needs. My work is very interactive and homework is often assigned to practice new skills. The purpose of our work together is to build a relationship that fosters an environment that is personalized and centered on your goals and objectives. In meeting your goals and objectives you will not only be able to successfully navigate through these challenges, but be better prepared to face future challenges life may bring.
We walk through life viewing the world through our own unique experiences. Imagine if you could shift to open new possibilities and new potential by broadening your view and changing your narrative. We are passionate about working with teens, adults, couples, families, veterans and first responders to create and reach goals that improve their lives.
I believe therapy is truly a collaborative effort for healing. You are the expert and the therapist is a conduit. I’m committed to helping people learn how to live by their values instead of letting emotions and thoughts control their lives. My work focuses on targeting ineffective behaviors, habits, and beliefs and transforming them into effective ways of living that brings people in touch their values. In life, we will always experience a full spectrum of emotions, it's all in our reactions to those emotions in which we build a life we're excited about. In my practice, I will never ask the person sitting across from me to do something I myself have not done. Meaning, I live my life by my therapy approaches and don't just use them as an "intervention." I also use a lot of humor, direct and transparent communication. Personally, I love dogs (have two of my own), reading, painting and engaging in sports or exercise! If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation with me, please send an appointment request.
I work with men’s issues, sexuality and HIV awareness, planning for retirement, coping with depression, anxiety and stress, family relationships and care giving, school phobia, childhood depression, improving grades, time management, talking about feelings, and anger.
