For the past fifteen years I’ve dedicated my personal and professional life to the importance of non-violence and self-compassion by teaching from my experience.
Being a specialist in the prevention of violence, I have intervened with the externalized rage in men and women domestic violence offenders from toxic families. As a result, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to put an end to relationship abuse. And, as I learn and grow, I teach self-compassion and give advice I use myself, in the hopes that it helps you to improve your own life. Many of the violent client’s I treat suffer from personality disorders. Physical violence against another is a narcissistic action. Learning about the damage from physical, emotional, and verbal violence has led me to write this blog.
I am also dedicating my personal and professional life to supporting people with limb loss. My learning journey with chronic physical pain is a result of my personal experience with phantom limb pain. I was graced with the gift of self-acceptance upon realization that my forearm was amputated. My discovery of the tripartite mirror apparatus innovation that I write about to treat phantom limb pain and the resulting work I get to do in helping limb loss people accept themselves is grace. Losing my arm has been one of the better things that has happen in my life. The adversity has taught me what it takes to put an end to self-created emotional pain. For that, I am very grateful.
