Authentic Sharing

Three of the many wellbeing topics we identified as common issues among the 40 warriors at recent Wounded Warrior Project workshop are…

SELF-ISOLATION

ANGER

STRUGGLE WITH SLEEP

It’s completely to be expected to feel this way! Trauma will do this to a person. Trauma can include combat zones, traumatic brain injury (TBI), post traumatic stress (PTS) as well as loss of a marriage, losing a job, going through health complications, Covid, overcoming childhood abuse and so much more!

We provide wellbeing tools and a safe environment where authentic sharing helps everyone not feeling alone and gain new resources to heal and thrive. Spouses and caregivers are also included!

Grateful to Wounded Warrior Project for sponsoring this monthly workshop! If you’re a WWP Alum, please join Army Veteran Paul Peng and me at our next WWP workshop.

Contact me for details or to bring this healing and empowerment workshop to your Veteran non-profit.

Love of country. Love of family.

On this evening … all I want to say is, from my home to yours … thank you for loving this wonderful country and our fabulous citizens!

FYI, this photo taken by a Navy veteran from my living room waiting while I was on the phone helping a new Marine family whose child is leaving tomorrow for boot camp. Something I’ve been through … twice.

We are truly ALL in this together.

Love of country.

Love of family.

I truly care about you, your family and our country. If you have someone you love going into the military or through a career transition to civilian life, it can tough. Please feel free to reach out to me and I’ll do my best to be of insight, value, support or encouragement. No charge. Just authentically caring and sharing what I have learned as a military family.

With love, we unite!
