Peer Support, Resource Consultations and Coaching

Working through the stages of mental illness recovery is not only mental and physical, it is emotional. There is a grieving process associated with mental health diagnosis and working the stages of recovery with mental illness. If you are searching for a professional that can help you identify how stigma is rooted in your daily life and how to work through it and move farther into recovery, you have come to the right place.

Unless you learn to face your own shadows, you will continue to see them in others, because the world outside you is only a reflection of the world inside you.
— Carl Jung

Shame, guilt, embarrassment, and fear with a mental illness diagnosis is largely contributed to personal and societal stigma. Understanding the depths and roots of stigma and fear can give you insight into your internal response as well as external reactions to situations. Identifying how stigma affects you and your everyday life is the key to unraveling it's grip and to living a more satisfying and successful life.

I am committed to a person-centered, trauma-informed, and strengths based approach to help you in your journey through recovery, stigma reduction, and obtaining the life you want despite your diagnosis. In working with me, we will take a healthy and thorough approach in identifying where stigma resides and gently began extricating it from your life. Your strengths are your biggest asset, and we will lead with those in our search for peace, acceptance, and normalizing mental illness.

Recovery began when I realized there was no end to my mental illness and where I began, it is part of who I am but does not have to define my existence’
— David K
