Suicidal thoughts

It’s a complicated thing to explain what it’s like to have suicidal thoughts, but not want to die. For some, it’s a constant weight of feeling like you don’t deserve to live. For me it is a persistent but passing thought. A fly that won’t leave you alone.

Whatever the extent of it, the fact that people can have suicidal thoughts when they have no active plans to kill themselves is something we need to talk about. There’s nothing shameful about experiencing suicidal thoughts, and a person should not have to reach a breaking point before they can reach out for support.

You can talk to me about suicidal thoughts.

Clinical Services vs. Peer Specialist Services

Clinical Services vs. Peer Specialist Services

Clinical services include diagnosis, different types of therapy, or possible prescription of medication. These services are provided by clinically trained and licensed individuals. Historically the clinical perspective has been more focused on stabilization and maintenance, but with the current transformation of the mental health system, their perspective is largely changing to focus on wellness and recovery. Clinical professionals therefore may increasingly seek to support people in achieving goals, using treatments to overcome barriers to those goals.

Peer specialist services are provided by trained and certified individuals who identify as having personal lived experience with a mental health or substance use condition. Peer specialists use their own recovery stories to provide hope, to support people in finding their own inner wisdom, and to set personal goals for recovery. Peer specialists assist individuals in developing skills and finding resources to overcome barriers to the self-identified goals.

The services of peer specialists complement, but do not replace, clinical services.


#Emetophobia is the fear of vomit, this took me a lifetime to talk about.

My anxiety began as a sever, debilitating case of #emetophobia when I was in third grade.

This article is about a parent trying to help their daughter.

If you or a family member have emetaphobia I can help. I no longer fear/panic over vomit. It took years, lots of work, and set backs but I know what works. ❤️

Your core issues

When your feeling down ,t can be hard to find the cause. When you’re experiencing episodes of depression, a good place to start is to ask yourself, what is happening in my life that is contributing to my depressed feelings? Sometimes, depression is caused by an external factor that is influencing your mood.

Some examples of triggered situations are:

dissatisfaction at home, work, or school, a disagreement with a loved one, upcoming presentation or school work, traumatic experience, a major life change such as a divorce ,child leaving home, or a death in the family.

also some seemingly “positive” life events can lead to depression as well:

a birth of a baby, work promotion, graduation from school, return from vacation, the holidays or other special occasions.

We are confident we can help you set goals, overcome obstetrical, and live YOUR best life.

Life is messy, but having a plan and a strong support system will make life more enjoyable.

Childhood anxiety

Does your child’s anxiety interfere with his or her ability to engage in typical age-appropriate activities or cause a great deal of distress? 

My anxiety began when I was 8 years old. I know what it feels like to be a child with anxiety and relentless fear. 

Is my child’s anxiety unhealthy?

If your parent intuition has you questioning this you probably already know the answer to this question, and I can help you help your child.

What is peer support?

The idea of peer support is to harness people's own experience of mental ill-health and recovery to support others and foster a sense of hope

.Peer support workers are uniquely placed to offer understanding and support to people, "having been in their shoes", and they do this outside the traditional doctor-patient relationship in a warm and comfortable non clinical way.
