Suicidality is a topic that reaches me on a very personal level; ten years ago I lost a good friend to suicide. I went through the range of emotions, from sadness and disbelief to shock and guilt (I was a mental health professional at the time – I of all people should have seen it coming, right?). The truth is, no one can predict when someone is going to attempt to take his/her own life. When it happens, it is a sad day for everyone involved.

If you know someone who took his/her own life (or maybe you have contemplated the thought yourself), it is important to remember that there is help out there. I am here to provide a pathway out of that dark place, a shoulder to cry on, and an ear to hear the things you have been hiding away from everyone else. Let me help you overcome the feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and despair that keeps you trapped.

Call, email, text, or click on the call-to-action button on the home page of my website. Just do it and take control back. I will be there with you every step of the way. And if you can’t reach out to me, call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
