About Me: 

I am 53 and raising my first grandson. I took him and went to a safe house a little over two years ago to stop the cycle of abuse in my family. My daughter is an addict and very abusive and it was the hardest choice i have ever made in my life and the best choice i have made in my life. To say no more, no more abuse, no more for any of us.....Today we are beginning to thrive and recover and learn how keep our safety and thrive one day at a time. I am a business owner of a womens natural health care clinic in Portland, Oregon.. I manage the clinic as well as i am a counselor and life coach and see individuals and couples.......It is wonderful to begin to see the world through a different set of glasses.....i am learning that our choices do matter no matter what circumstance we are in......Here is to living a life of choice and learning how to empower myself and others.....
