I started using marijuana and alcohol when I was 13 years old when a family friend introduced it to me. In 1988 (at the age of 16) I started using cocaine, methamphetamine and opiates. In 1991 I had my first son, and when I turned 21 I was in full blown addiction. I started gambling to support my addiction and lost everything.
I began stealing from friends, family and strangers, which led to being a drug dealer (I did anything I could to get drugs and money)… At the age of 35 I couldn’t keep a job to save my life. The drugs had my heart and soul I couldn't stop using, which led to being homeless and eventually being incarcerated on October 13, 2007. That’s when I hit total rock bottom. I'd lost everything again for the hundredth time. I was finally ready to surrender.
In my recovery, I have learned many things about who I am - finding who you are is a vital step in the HEROS process, (it's part of what I call “doing the work”). This is 1 of 9 steps that must be completed and practiced daily. I have discovered ways to help others by holding one-on-one meetings, and by helping them surrender and start feeling hope sooner rather than later - if they are willing to do the work.
"My goal is to stay sober, humble, and to help as many people as possible with all their addictions. We cannot do this alone and we cannot force it on anyone. This step program is for the willing! If you’re reading this, HEROS HELP HEROS, we can recover!"
I’ve now been happily married since 2017 to a loving wife who has supported my dream of helping others with their addictions. We are excitedly expecting our first born in December 2021.
I lived most of my life outwardly as a religious family man while inwardly I was an anxiety ridden closeted homosexual. I tried very hard to get it right and live for my God and church and family thinking that my orientation was sinful and curable. I was able to become a father of 4 beautiful daughters from my first marriage for whom I wouldn’t change any part of my life. I then married 2 more women before finally coming to terms with my sexuality and need to be fully authentic and self expressed. Ten years ago, at age 43, I came out and began living an integrated life.
“Know thyself” is a mantra of mine and a guiding principle on my journey. Religion could only take me so far on this spiritual quest and I also left my church in order to proceed. I honor my past and what I learned from religion while now embracing truths found everywhere, particularly in the esoteric healing arts. Not only do I strive to know myself, I love helping others learn themselves and love who they are.
I have degrees in Psychology and Holistic Life Coaching. I am trained in healing modalities such as Emotional Freedom Technique and Energetic Systems Maintenance. I am an attuned Reiki Master. I am an Astrologer and Tarot/Oracle card Reader. I am a certified Emotion Code and Soul Plan practitioner.
"So, as a Spiritual Coach, I have an extensive toolbox to empower those with whom I work to remove the blocks to self knowledge, self love, and authentic self expression that creates a beautiful life and serves all of humanity."
I’m beyond excited to be a part of HEROS and share my gifts to aid in addiction recovery and all areas of self discovery and rebirth.
