Understanding your story can change your story
I write articles that talk about the kind of changes I am trying to make in my own life. I hope that my writing also helps you.
My topics include addiction and mental health recovery, relationships, and personal growth. I work three jobs that interest me (my day job as an Addiction Therapist, an Editor for the Good Men Project and freelance writer, and Adjunct Professor at City University, Edmonton). But what is most important is that I have a family and I am in recovery from depression and anxiety. My mental health experiences are part of my personal University degree, but they do not define me.
I hope to inspire you, to inform you, and on occasion to entertain you. But most of all, I want to connect with you. Sign up for my blog if you want to receive the latest and best of my writing. If you like what I have to say, please share my work with your friends.
I have written a Healing Manifesto which is a declaration of what healing can be for each of us. I hope that it will support you in your life and in your recovery.
I have worked in the substance abuse recovery field and as a Counselling Therapist for over 25 years. A little more about me:
- I am an Editor at the Good Men Project

- My professional publications can be found here, at Academia.
- I am contributing author to the sites listed at the bottom of this page.
