Another year under our belts; another year of healing. Good job everyone! I’m so proud of you. I know it’s not been an easy journey. It’s been hard as hell for some of you. And lonely, too, I know. But here we are, standing on the brink of the New Year. Three hundred and sixty-five days in 2019 that are brimming with opportunity. Every day, a new beginning, a chance to practice acceptance, patience, faith, and hope. Three hundred and sixty-five days to love as deeply as we can.

I am closing out the year with an ocean of gratitude. 2018 was the year I moved away from the Bay Area to where my heart and soul could truly feel alive. I worked hard on allowing my central nervous system to heal from my setback, and that work has paid off. (I have mostly healed!) I’ve made new friends, “adopted” four feral cats that I feed (and trapped and had “fixed”) enjoyed writing my Soul Reminders ( and my blog. I published the book Soul RemindersLittle Chats With God, helped friends create websites and content ( taught my Acceptance Workshop three months in a row (and met some wonderful people) and I created The Benzo Withdrawal Coloring Book,  plus put the final touches on The Benzodiazepine Tapering Journal.


Not a bad year for someone who had a nasty setback midway through 2017!

What does 2019 hold for my work in the benzo community? I’ll still be coaching, creating more month-long classes, and creating more books to help people on their healing journey. I’m incredibly excited about the New Year.

I’ll keep you posted here with updates about workshops and books. I appreciate that you were patient with me when I took most of December off from blogging. It gave me the chance to work on the new books. Thank you!

May the New Year bring you all things bright and beautiful.  May your heart dance and your soul sing. May you intimately know peace and love.

I love you.
