Description


Do you, like me, tend to hold onto the past, no matter how hard you try to let it go? Everyone has skeletons in their closet, ghosts in their attic, or monsters beneath their bed that occasionally rattle, haunt, or claw their way into everyday life. This is simply part of being human. However, if you feel doomed to have these horrible experiences from your past haunt you for the rest of your life, I am here to bring you on a journey of hope and healing.
